The city of Lincoln, Alabama is located about an hour east of Birmingham. This area is nestled right by the Coosa River so the city sees lots of annual visitors. Lincoln asked us to freshen up their branding and website to improve the experience of locals and visitors. Doing city branding is such a fun and unique project! First, we met with the mayor and city council to discuss the project. We did an in-person strategy session to determining the new messaging, brand persona, and overall brand voice they wanted to represent Lincoln. The goal of the rebranding was to put more focus on lake Logan Martin which is a huge draw to the city vs. the history of the city which is currently reflected in the city’s old branding. Essentially the city wants to be known for one thing; proximity to Logan Martin
Once we established the vision, we began pulling images and colors to build their aesthetic. Lincoln is a city where people can go to relax and have fun on the water, so that’s the direction we went with their mood board:
Many anglers travel to this area for it’s great fishing waters. Lincoln is currently expanding and just unveiled a brand new state of the art fishing park . It is currently booked out into 2023 to accommodate fishing tournament participants! To highlight the fishing aspect of the area, we put a fish right in the logo. The new city logo features a large mouth bass paired with modern lakeside tones: cozy blues, greens, and yellows which are often found in nature. We hope Lincoln loves their new look and that it helps encourage tourism to the area.
