Issue No. 163 - 17 July 2004
Community logo available for all to use
(Note: These logos are not available for use after 1 December 2006)
You can show your pride in Wanganui by using the community logo - maybe on your promotional material or team uniforms.
The Council wants to promote wide and appropriate use of the logo in the community and those are just two of the ways it can be used.
The Wanganui Quality Well Worth the Journey slogan was launched in 1997 and the current image was adopted in 2000. The image represents the Whanganui River, hills surrounding Wanganui and the outline of the Sarjeant Gallery roof. It is now widely used by the Council, community clubs and organisations, and appears on a lot of Wanganui promotional material.
The use of the wording "Wanganui Quality Well Worth the Journey" by Wanganui individuals, organisations and businesses is encouraged. The marketing slogan is intended to help identify and unify products, services, lifestyle and features of the Wanganui District. However, the Council reserves the right to decline any use not considered appropriate.
Wanganui printers, signwriters and screenprinters have digital versions of the logo. A specification manual is available and all users are requested to adopt the standards in the manual wherever possible to ensure that the presentation of the image remains consistent and represents quality.
The logo is available in colour or black and white and in a variety of formats. The word "Quality" is optional and can be replaced to meet the needs of the individual, business or organisation using the logo. The wording variations available are:
Education, Historic River City, Lifestyle, New Zealand, Quality, Shopping, Sport, Weekends.
