Measurable Outcome(s)

The East Central Regional Library Legacy Fund Committee members felt the logo chosen successfully met the following three criteria: 1) logo had great visual appeal; 2) logo would be a good representation of ECRL; 3) logo was transferrable to not only print materials, but to vehicles, the webpage, etc., and 4) logo was not dated, but was current and yet not too abstract.Individuals visiting the library’s website, receiving correspondence with the logo and those noticing the logo on our legacy publicity have made positive comments about its simplicity yet visibility.  Many said “you have a logo now, we love it.”One regional library system also expressed interest in retaining the graphic artist to work on a logo for their system.

Project Overview

East Central Regional Library solicited proposals for a new graphic logo to represent the Library. The selected logo would be used on the ECRL website and other online resources, letterheads, bookmarks, press releases, t-shirts, etc. It would also be part of the library’s historical book published in the Spring 2010. 16 East Central Regional Library residents submitted 21 logo design entries.
