Brookhaven Logo

Brookhaven Logo

At the Governor's Commission meeting Jed Beardsley (District 3 Representative) brought up the topic of a Brookhaven logo. It was mentioned that logo creation can be costly and that members of the Brookhaven Community might have some good ideas about what would make a great logo. If you have a good logo idea post it (or a link) in the comments.

I completely agree - that is a great idea. If there are parents out there who have children that want to participate start thinking about what you'd like the Brookhaven logo to look like.

to think that the old grouchy guy got angry really angry - about this discussion tells me that some council meetings will drag on late into the night in 2013. Reminds me of old fraternity meeting arguments over the color of the cup to be used at a social. It's a logo DESIGNED BY A KID. It's not a redesign of the olympic game for cryin out loud!

I wonder how many kids will draw a stick figure holding a bag of hot air?

Why dont we worry about putting a friggin city together and save the dang fluff. Good lord. Are you people serious? We have a giant hill to climb and we are worried about a dadgum logo? Well hell. Why not a theme song too?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVwFADi4Y38 The end of the Incorporation was near When quite accidentally, A hero who sneezed abruptly seized Retreat and reversed it to victory. His medal of honor pleased and thrilled his proud little family group. While pinning it on some blood was spilled And so it was planned he'd command Brookhaven. Where HamBurger fights are colorful sights and nobody takes a lickin' Where J Max and Eddie Both turn chicken. When kicking and fighting get them down, They know their morale can't droop. As long as they all relax in town Before they resume with a bang and a boom Brookhaven!

Ms. Jane, thank you for the memories. It was simple and silly, but life was a whole lot less complicated back then. Thank you. Please pass the yellow mustard!

Grieg, I do believe you get my point!

Are we talking High School or Kindergarten? I agree the logo should come later. After all if the finances turnout to be as bad as some say it will be we'll want a logo that looks good in Black and White.......

To Eric @ 7:33pm -- Didn't Dunwoody spend a couple of hundred thousand on branding and a logo and signage, only to find out the citizens didn't like what they came up with? Since our potential city leaders seem intent on following the likes of Dunwoody and Sandy Springs, I would expect no less. http://dunwoody.patch.com/articles/dunwoody-halts-new-signs -- The Maven

Mr. Eric, I just love how you are developing your sense of humor . . . Plus, maybe you honed your math skills? Special hamburger?

Mr. BM, the Smart People spent $40,000 plus only to have their logo rejected by their citizens. “Since our potential city leaders seem intent on following the likes of Dunwoody and Sandy Springs, I would expect no less.” - Mr. BM Smart People Reject Logo - Dunwoody's Signs - What Happened? http://dunwoody.patch.com/articles/dunwoody-s-signs-what-happened It’s Plano to see: Dunwoody makes a quick switch of new logo http://www.reporternewspapers.net/2010/11/04/plano-dunwoody-quick-switch-logo/ One can only hope we are as equally as smart as the Smart People! How about this: Brookhaven! We Are Super Smarter Than Dunwoody! We Learned From Them!

Will we take our lead from one of the cities that promoted us? The Smart People? Smart People - Dunwoody Ethics Board to Meet Tuesday http://dunwoody.patch.com/articles/ethics-board-to-meet-tuesday Please pass the yellow mustard!

Yes we will have to make sure our elected officials stay true to their stated mindset of being fiscal hawks who will question every expenditure. Though I also want them to be socially progressive and embrace the diversity of the city's population and recognize we are inside 285 between the City and the large Perimeter CID Urban Activity Center. There's room to protect the integrity of the single family subdivisions but we also have to accommodate the growth of the region and steer some of it inside our borders. We don't want to just be a doormat that people are just cutting through to get somewhere else.
