Gwinnett’s Board of Commissioners voted Tuesday afternoon to formally adopt a new logo, seal and slogan for the county.
The new branding created by architecture and design firm Perkins+Will was first presented to officials (and to the public, via media reports) last month. The logo is a circle with colorful, "kaleidoscopic" shapes overlapping inside, and the seal is that same shape with the words "Gwinnett County," "Georgia" and "Established 1818" wrapped around it.
The slogan, a favorite target for online detractors, is "Vibrantly Connected."
While county officials have expressed support from the get-go, many Gwinnett residents weren't fans of the new branding. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's first article on the new designs garnered hundreds of online comments, most of them negative.
