brand identity for Burnham-On-Sea debated by town councillors
to introduce a new 'brand identity' for Burnham-On-Sea were debated
by town councillors this week.
Centre Manager Bev Milner Simonds unveiled the plans during the
council's Town Projects Committee meeting on Monday.
suggesting we commission two professional artists to design two
new images for Burnham to create a new, unified look and feel
for the town," she said.
images - to feature the beach, seafront and Pavilion - would then
be made available for traders to sell branded products such as
ceramics and postcards in the town.
Martin Cox said: "I'm keen that we have a friendly brand
that people can recognise Burnham by - not just the town crest
which is used on formal Town Council materials."
Cllr Nick Tolley added: "This could be the foundation for
a super new identity but we should remember that there are very
skilled artists here in Burnham already and it would be good to
see some of those young people who produce outstanding work in
our schools being involved."
Chairman Cllr Paul said more feedback from Burnham's traders on
what products they require is needed, along with further details
about the proposals and community involvement before a decision
is made. Further work will therefore be undertaken on the brand
ideas and students' involvement.
