Logo Community Feedback

April 2021 Feedback

Mariemont City Schools is again asking for community input in the logo design process. Please click here to share your opinions on four design prototypes. Please note that this is not a vote between four logos but rather a feedback-collecting exercise for specific design elements. The survey will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 16.

March 2021 Feedback


Following the co-creation session held in December, three concept boards with descriptive words and themes to serve as inspiration for a new logo were shared with the broader community for feedback.  
The three concept boards shared were themed: (1) Steadfast Bravery, (2) Iconic Grit and (3) Engaged Community. Community members were asked to rank the concept/themes in order of appeal.  Additionally, community members were asked to select words that most describe what a "warrior" means to them. 
The logo project team reviewed the feedback and began to build a narrative to share with the logo designer, Tom Gilmore.  Four words and one concept board were then chosen using the community feedback. 
Words that best describe a Warrior:  Honorable, Determined, Courage and Stronger Together. 
Inspiration/Concept : Steadfast Bravery
Taken together, these words and inspiration/concept are the foundation for the overall logo theme developed by the project team:  The "Bold Protector.”  
The "Bold Protector" is honorable, determined, courageous, stronger together, adaptable, timeless, driven and adventurous. 
With a theme established and identified, the logo project committee then created a list of potential elements for the designer to consider when creating images/concepts for the Bold Protector. These common elements have been sent to the community for feedback:
  • Maintain a blue and gold color scheme in the logo design.
  • Avoid the use of a block “M” in the logo design as it is too similar to other schools in the area.
  • Contain the logo design within a circle.
  • Do not incorporate additional colors (beyond blue and gold) into the logo design.
  • Create a logo design that is a mascot/image rather than typeface/letters only. 
  • Find a way of incorporating the four communities (Fairfax, Mariemont, Terrace Park, Williams’ Meadow) into the logo design.
  • Keep the logo design gender neutral.
  • Avoid the use of any Native American imagery/artifacts in the logo design.
  • Create a logo design that is simple and/or abstract.
  • Create a logo design that is unique to the region.
  • Create a logo design that is classic and traditional.
  • Create a logo design that is bold and dynamic.

The school district continues its work on logo development and we would like your feedback. Last month a group of 15 community members were led by our designer and community member, Tom Gilmore, through a co-creation session with the goal of developing concept boards for what a “warrior” means to us. To learn more about this session click here
These "concept boards" have been collected and are now ready for your feedback. It’s important to know that what you are about to view are not logo designs. A "concept board" captures the essence or theme of what a warrior could be, to then be used as the inspiration for a logo design. We are asking that you first review this document that outlines the three concepts.

Second, click on this link to the survey to rank the "concept boards" from your favorite to least favorite. The survey will be open until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 22
Thank you for participating in the logo development process, we appreciate your engagement. For the latest news and information about the district's logo process, please visit the District Logo page on our website.
