New town logo close to being endorsed

Rimbey council is in the process of fine-tuning a new logo for the town.

Rimbey council is in the process of fine-tuning a new logo for the town.

At its regular meeting, Monday council discussed several logo options before making a decision.

The final design shows the word ‘Rimbey’ written in flowing blue letters. Before the word Rimbey, there is a design depicting a highway curving towards the name which is to suggest all roads lead to Rimbey. A green curve indicates agriculture is strong in the area.

A suggestion by Melvin Durand, who was sitting in the gallery, to change the oil drop above the second letter in the word Rimbey to the color black was given the nod by council.

Council also agreed to have Craig Oliver from amazing ideas (the company who is designing the town’s website) to change the letter ‘b’ so it wouldn’t be mistaken for a ‘6’.

Mayor Rick Pankiw said a new logo is needed.

“What we’re trying to tell people is that Rimbey is open for business,” said Pankiw.

Interim CAO Donna Tona said the logo should convey a message.

“What do we want to attract?” she said. “Right now we’re attracting nothing.” Why would people want to come here?”

She noted during discussions regarding the town’s new website, it has become apparent the first thing the public sees in the town logo.
