The new signature brand was developed as a result of research done of best practices in other cities and at the State level. This led to an assessment of the City’s many communications vehicles, and ultimately a need to establish a unified voice for all Philadelphia departments and projects. The Office of the City Representative, working with the 65-person pro-bono Philadelphia Executive Marketing Council, undertook this extensive project that has been developed over the last 12 months. The Philadelphia-based Star Group donated their creative services, and the PCVB donated services to finalize a style guide that clearly outlines how the new brand will be implemented both internally and externally. The signature brand, designed to transcend administrations, will roll out organically through partnerships and existing communications vehicles, so as not to cost the City any unnecessary dollars to implement. In fact, the entire project was completed at no cost to the City. (http://www.phila.gov/)

Senoia now has an official city logo and slogan.
The Senoia City Council unanimously approved the logo at its meeting on Monday.
The Downtown Development Authority and a DDA committee formed to consider issues related to the Southern Living Idea House event in Senoia this year worked with the city to come up with a logo to market the city and “get the name recognition out there,” said Senoia Mayor Robert Belisle. he city’s iconic water tower figures prominently in the logo. The water tower itself is painted with the image of Princess Senoia. The Princess Senoia image is owned by the Senoia Area Historical Society.
“Originally, we did include the princess on the water tower. And in discussion with the historical society, they made it quite clear that they were not in favor of using the princess logo in any type of merchandising manner,” Belisle said. “So the committee made the decision to take the princess off the water tower.”
The new city logo will be used on all city correspondence. The slogan is, “The perfect setting. For life.”(http://assets.mediaspanonline.com)

The new logo is a colorful mix of elements that represent the downtown area, says Candace Bales, executive director of the Bay City Downtown Management Board & Development Authority.
“The story it tells, it is just a very smart design,” she said. “It’s extremely colorful on purpose and it is also Web site oriented.”
Each object on the logo represents a part of downtown Bay City, Bales said.
At the bottom of the logo are five waves representing the river, which Bales said the organization wanted to emphasize. Above the water reads: “Downtown Bay City,” with a sun for the dot on the “i.” Above the writing is a mixture of elements that are prominent to the downtown-area — the Delta College Planetarium, the clock tower, a draw bridge, a sailboat and skyline of buildings.
The old logo for the Bay City Downtown Management Board & Development Authority. Bales said designers used the old logo as a starting point, but with new technology, it was easier to make the logo unique for downtown Bay City. “We’re looking into objects to put (the logo) on, which we’ve dabbled in a little bit in the past,” Bales said. “We feel this is something people wouldn’t mind (wearing).” The new logo will be featured in marketing materials in 2010 for the Bay City Downtown Management Board & Development Authority and businesses are encouraged to use the logo.
