Colusa holds competition for the design of the city’s new logo | New
After nearly 60 years, Colusa City Council has decided it is time to spruce up the city’s logo and entries for the logo competition are encouraged in the coming weeks.
The logo contest will bring together a collection of potential future logos that could, pending council approval, replace the existing logo, according to a statement released by the city.
“The new logo is expected to pay homage to the history, culture, natural environment, agriculture and business influences of the city of Colusa,” the statement said. “Submissions should also highlight the characteristics that make Colusa unique and usable in a number of print and digital formats without losing the integrity of color or form. Anyone can submit a submission, but submissions from residents within Colusa City Limits will be awarded an additional point upon initial scoring.
According to the statement, all submissions will first go through a review committee made up of staff from the city, Colusa County Arts Council, Colusa Indian Community Council and others who will narrow the selection down to first three that best meet the criteria. All selections will be judged blind.
The top three finalists will be made available to the public to vote online and in person. The results of the public poll will be used to narrow it down to the final two choices, which will be presented to city council, along with the ballot results, for the final vote.
“The winning logo will receive $ 500 graciously donated by Messick Ace Hardware,” said Kristy Levings, Director of Economic Development, Tourism and Communications. “Colusa is a creative place and anyone with a logo idea is encouraged to submit it. “
Submissions will be accepted until Monday, October 18 and must be submitted electronically to [email protected] in PNG, PDF or JPEG format.
Additional guidelines for the contest are available at www.CityofColusa.com or by visiting the Town Hall counter, 425 Webster St., Colusa.
