What an opportunity. One of our favorite cities in the world is turning 200 years old. When the marketing committee called and asked if we had time to design the logo for the celebration, our answer was, “you’re kidding, right?”.
We began the design and collaborated with local leaders to create something timeless, inclusive and symbolic. The new logo includes the image of fire that is of great importance to the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma, whose ancestors lived along the banks of the Ocmulgee River for centuries.
Visit Macon Executive Director Gary Wheat explained the multi-faceted symbolism of including the flame in the Bicentennial logo.
“The fire not only reflects of the Muscogee that were here, but is also the internal fire that burns with each and every person that tries to make Macon better each day,” Wheat said.
Bringing this vision to life, is an honor.
