New City of Vancouver logo going to public consultation

May 17 2017, 6:55 pm

Just when you thought the City of Vancouver logo saga was over…The City is now inviting the public to give their input on yet another new wordmark.

According to a release, the new logo consultation process is being led by the BC Chapter of the Graphic Designers of Canada.

Interested residents will be able to complete an online survey to share their thoughts on “what makes Vancouver unique” until May 25, next Thursday.

The survey results will form part of a report to inform a call for design for the local graphic design community to be issued in early June by the Graphic Designers of Canada.

The association, led by BC Chapter President Johnathon Strebly, will review all the submissions and selecting three finalist designs.

The public will then be able to vote to choose the City’s new logo later this summer.

The move follows the scrapping of a heavily criticized new logo using the Gotham font that cost the City $8,000 of taxpayers’ money.

To have your say, sign up to Talk Vancouver, the City’s survey website, and check out the online survey here:
