In a key milestone, draft proposals for three possible logo designs for the new West Northamptonshire Council have been unveiled today and feedback invited to help shape the final design.
This new logo will be needed in plenty of time for the new Council to go live in April 2021, so the aim is to have a final design agreed in the autumn.
The three logos were devised by two in-house designers currently serving the eight partner Councils which will eventually become the two new authorities for Northamptonshire. The process has been led and shaped by the Communications and Engagement Task and Finish Group for West Northamptonshire, which includes Councillors from across Daventry, Northampton and South Northamptonshire.
Cllr Jonathan Nunn, Chair of the Communications and Engagement Task and Finish Group for West Northamptonshire, said:
“We want to get things off on the right foot in West Northamptonshire, so it was important that we carried out this work using existing design staff, helping us save costs.
“There was a great deal of detailed thinking behind the three designs, but we think it’s important that people aren’t swayed by that.
“The primary questions for us are, which of them best reflects the aspirations we have for the new West Northamptonshire Council, and is the design sufficiently memorable.
“First impressions are important but we’re also more than happy for people to spend a little time pondering which of the designs they prefer.
“We’re also very keen to receive feedback to see if they can be further refined, or whether people feel there are other elements we should consider including.”
