How to Design an American City Seal


Most every time, it’s better to ask questions. What started off as a slight revision of a city seal, turned into a 16-version dance that, to my surprise, didn’t end horribly. There was definitely some frustration and preliminary lack of communication, which I can take partial blame for. I assumed they wanted Ben in the seal. They didn’t. I was told we couldn’t use the courthouse image at all and, well….today I got the news: after two months of racking my brain on what symbol/image to put in the middle of our little enclosure, the city had decided on the bottom graphic above.

So, in the end, the project turned out to be something that was very challenging, but very fulfilling. I feel like I birthed this baby…the old fashioned way.
