New logo for Haywood Arts Council

In its 40th anniversary year, the Haywood County Arts Council (HCAC) received a $4,500 grant from the Fund for Haywood County to engage a marketing firm to update their organizational identity. Now, following months of work with 7 Ton Co., the HCAC is proud to share its new look with the wider community.

After reviewing several logo options, the HCAC Executive Director and Board of Directors selected a modern logo that plays on the artistic traditions of Haywood County. The logo was described in this way by the designers: “Honoring the rich traditions of the region, this concept uses a simplified version of a traditional quilting pattern to act as a symbol of the Blue Ridge Mountains as well as the historical artistry of Haywood County.”

Lindsey Solomon, executive director of the Haywood County Arts Council, shares, “I am so excited about this new look for a new season of growth in the HCAC. Though our old logo was a more literal arts interpretation — dance, music, and visual arts — this version is more regional and abstract, allowing us to explore more artistic mediums and opportunities. I feel that it reflects our broader artistic community in a fresh way. I hope the community loves it as much as we do.”

The Haywood County Arts Council would like to thank the Fund for Haywood County and The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, whose grant funding made this updated look possible.
