Hogansville looks for new logo designs from community

The city of Hogansville is looking for someone to help design a new logo.

Mayor Bill Stankiewicz said that since coming to Hogansville in the early 2000s there has been talk of updating the logo.

“It just has been dismissed before,” Stankiewicz said. “More recently, we noticed that our logo is antiquated. If you put it beside other local municipality logos, you’ll notice the county had a similar design to ours, but they changed it. They changed theirs to a more modern design. Chambers County changed theirs and I believe LaGrange also adopted a more modern design.”

Hogansville will also celebrate its 150th anniversary in October, so the timing felt right to rebrand.

“It is such a perfect time and since we are moving into a new city hall we’ll also have to get all new stationary,” Stankiewicz said. “We will have a new address and everything. This is the time to get a new logo.”

According to City Manager Jonathan Lynn, only one logo has been submitted to the city.

Submissions must be made by 4 p.m. on Sept. 21 at Hogansville City Hall, located at 400 East Main Street.

Submissions need to be in the form of a jpeg or similar digital formats, in multiple image sizes as well as hard copies in different sizes. 

Artists must send in 12 or more hard copies.

“We left the submission open-ended because we want to see a ton of ideas,” Lynn said. “We will arrange a public viewing and let the public show which ones they like the most. We want as many submissions as possible.”

Whoever submits the selected design will receive a stipend of $299 and can also claim authorship.

“We will most likely use a committee to narrow down the designs, and they will not know any of the authors on the design,” Stankiewicz said. “We want to do it blind. It is not a popularity contest.”

The city is not placing any restrictions on the submitted designs but wishes to maintain the basic green color used for the prominent color in the design.

Lynn said all designs will be considered no matter what color it is.

All colors used must be designated using the SAE-AMS-STD-595 system or the Natural Color System.

For more information on designing or submitting a logo call Hogansville City Hall at (706) 637-8629 or email cityhall@cityofhogansville.org.
