Crestwood considers new logos

Crestwood considers new logos

Option A from Danny Elchert

The city of Crestwood is considering a logo redesign and is seeking the community’s input on what logo to choose before May 8. Take the survey here.

The idea to adopt a new city logo began a few months back while staff was working to expand the city’s communication efforts. Knowing that the current logo has been in place since the 1990s, the city hopes for a fresh new look to coincide with the revived city newsletter.

The Board of Aldermen has narrowed the choices down to two designs.

Option A is the work of graphic designer Danny Elchert, who helped “revive the city’s communication efforts,” according to a news release. Elchert worked with city staff to create a new look as part of an overall rebranding effort. That logo and newsletter design cost a flat $1,000.

Option B from Paula Kapfer.

Option B was submitted by graphic designer and Crestwood resident Paula Kapfer.

After learning that the city was exploring new logos, she asked for an opportunity to design a logo for inclusion in the selection process. Kapfer’s design represents Crestwood’s history, present and future.

Residents can also choose the current city logo.
