The Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council held a logo contest in the run-up to its March meeting. At that meeting, all attendees were given the chance to vote on their favorite.
There were three strong submissions from residents Stan Burke, Joe Snodgrass and Liorah Wichser. Stan decided to emphasize Emerson-Garfield’s parks with a silhouette of children playing that ought to bring a smile to your face. Joe cleverly echoed the contours of a leaf in an old-fashioned streetlight so as to highlight the neighborhood’s mix of history and nature. Liorah focused on the historic aspect of the neighborhood by representing it through period typography and an antique-looking sign.
In the end, it was Liorah’s submission that garnered the most votes. From now on you’ll start to see that logo on EGNC correspondence and across our social media presence (such as here on our blog and on our Twitter feed).
We hope to find other ways to integrate the other excellent logo submissions — for example, Stan’s would be great for our park-related news and events (and we hope to have a lot of those in the near future), and Joe’s would be ideal for matters that pertain to planning and N. Monroe revitalization.
