If nearly 200 comments on an Atlanta Journal-Constitution Facebook page are any indication, the online crowd really doesn’t like the front-runner for Gwinnett County’s new logo and slogan.

The colorful overlapping shapes of the logo revealed Tuesday look like a knockoff of the logo for Internet browser Google Chrome, they said. The cursive font used for the slogan — “vibrantly connected” — is hard to read, they said. Why can’t we just bring back the water towers, they said.

I hope it was free, they said.

The logo, slogan and other re-branding efforts — which are not final, could be tweaked and still must be voted on by the county’s Board of Commissioners — in fact cost about $123,000, according to a contract approved by the board in February.

But not everyone hates them.
