MetroParks’ new leaf shaped logo, which features a more contemporary look in terms of colors, was adopted by the Board of Park Commissioners at its Oct. 18 meeting, Barkley said. She said the design itself embodies the elements of the importance of protected green space, water quality and a connection to the communities that MetroParks serves.
Barkley said the new logo was designed by Butler County's own LemonGrenade Creative of Hamilton. Thommy Long, LemonGrenade's founder and creative director, brainstormed the logo development with MetroParks staff and his talented team of design professionals.
She said there will obviously be an overlap of the old logo and new logo seen as the transition to the new logo occurs. Within next few weeks park customer/owners should see the new logo immediately on park system’s communications and social media sites.
Barkley said over the next few months the new logo will appear on transitional signage at park entrances as a part of routine sign inspection and maintenance; as well as, and other locations where new signage is warranted.
She also said uniformed park employees will have either logo and that new logos will only be added to clothing as it is scheduled to be replaced in accordance with its uniform policy.
