Marietta's New Look Gives History a Modern Flare
The Marietta Visitors Bureau's new logo shows the history and uniqueness of Marietta Square.
The Marietta Visitors Bureau painted the town hip with its new look. At an open house during the May First Friday Art Walk, the bureau revealed its new logo.
"We wanted it to reflect the Square but have a more updated look than the old look," Theresa Jenkins of the Visitors Bureau said. "It shows forward movement with its curve. It shows the history and uniqueness of the Square with a modern flare."
The Square is the number one attraction in Marietta, Jenkins said. The Art Walk, concerts and festivals as well as the museums and theater are a part of this tourism hot spot.
Though recent figures were not available, Jenkins estimates that 50,000 people come through the Welcome Center and 1.2 million visitors come to the Square each year.
The new logo was developed by 524 Creative. The first use of the new logo will be incorporated in advertising on the Historic Marietta Trolley and on pole banners around the Square.
A new website and visitor guide are expected to be released in June.
Open house visitors participated in painting the new logo on canvases, which will be hung in the Visitors Bureau. Other activities included refreshments, a photo booth provided by Promo Photo and live entertainment by He Sang, She Sang.
