For cities like Joliet that are competing for skilled workers, businesses, tourists and dollars, image matters. There is a perception gap between how Joliet wants to be seen and how it is perceived. Tim Kump of Bullet Communications is using design to change the image of Joliet.
In his continuing quest to improve the image of Joliet, Kump, who also created CityofJoliet.com, recently turned his attention to creating a brand logo for Joliet. In developing a brand logo for the city, Kump knew it was important for the brand to be accurate and not to oversell a promise. The logo had to be believable. It also had to have emotional value. Kump's statement of GoJoliet! City on the Move™ accomplishes these objectives. The brand promise reflects Joliet's excitement and forward progress and states that the positive developments are continuing.
The logo Kump created for Joliet is intended to boost the city's reputation and give residents a symbol to rally behind. Kump says the branding campaign isn't just about image but about inspiring people here to work together to promote the city. The GoJoliet! brand logo is an important step in making a positive impact on Joliet's image.
