    Yah, get some students in art and graphic design to create something for the city. I would think they could create something just as well as a marketing company, but be more in tune to what the image of the city actually is.

    killian, lucky for the designer or marketing company who produced the Experience Columbus logo and identity they don’t live in North Korea, they’d be subjected to 6 hours of public ridicule and sentenced to constructions jobs.

    It’s absolutely awful and doesn’t have to be.

    What’s a shame is when these type of opportunities arise and are squandered when a reader of the NY Times clicks through and sees sites like ExperienceColumbus.com

    You end up with everyone seeing what they want to see.

    Some see us as San Francisco on the Scioto ( pride parades, taxes ) others as Chicago’s little brother ( insurance, banking )… guess some would like to see us more like Cleveland ( but if that’s such a nice place to visit, how come no one wants to live there? ).

    So, Columbus. Rorschach test.

    Out of curiosity what are slogans of other cities. I ask because I seriously can’t name one. I know both Ausitn and Portland like to say “keep X weird,” certainly not a city marketing deal just something the citizenry like to say. In the end, I guess it would be cool if the city had a decent marketing slogan, but in the end, does it matter? Would anyone remember it anyhow?

    I know the 2 city slogans, Reno and Las Vegas. And the only reason I know the former is because of Reno 911.

    I stand corrected, I didn’t think about it, but yes, I do know both those. I should have noted those two.

    Columbus is a darling town, with a lot to offer. Its poorly marketed (as is most of Ohio). However, in my opinion, diversity is SO not one of it’s strong points.
