20 Jul Branding Created by North Star for Union County, NC and Several Departments
Jacksonville, FL, July 20, 2021 — North Star Place Branding + Marketing recently developed a new brand platform for Union County, NC as well as several Union County department identities.
The new “Plant Your Future” brand was unveiled in June after several months of community input from more than 200 local leaders and stakeholders within the county and region to help discover what is unique about Union County. Over 500 county residents took part in the community survey which aided in the research to develop the strategy and creative brand.
Four Union County departments also have new, refreshed looks that tie into the County’s new brand. The departments that are debuting a new identity include the Library, Parks and Recreation, Emergency Services, and Water (formerly Public Works). There now is a consistent look with distinguishing features for each.
Partnering organizations involved with the branding campaign include the Union County Library Foundation, Friends of the Library, Monroe-Union County Economic Development, and Union County Board of Elections. New logos for each of these organizations are in development.
North Star is considered a pioneer in helping communities harness the strength of a well-defined and uniquely articulated brand identity. Having worked with more than 200 communities in 44 states nationwide, North Star has helped client communities uncover and express their authentic story and inspire local action to achieve their preferred future.
“Union County is a special place beside the Charlotte metro and we’re excited to see the brand’s acceptance and impact throughout the community,” Will Ketchum, CEO of North Star says. “This rebrand now allows Union County to share their story and compete for the future they want.”
