Voting Open For Our New Logo
Aiken County Government is experiencing an exciting transition. Next year, we will be relocating to a new, modern government center. This center will benefit the public through providing modern access to multiple departments in one location. In this transition, Aiken County wants to showcase this exciting time with a new logo design that represents the County. In an effort to involve the community, Aiken County worked with University of South Carolina-Aiken graphic design students to create a design that would best represent the County. Professor Michael Fowler’s class of approximately 20 graphic design students created individual designs that were then narrowed down to six by County staff. The staff provided feedback to these six students and asked them to work together to develop two design ideas ready to present to County Council. Aiken County Council would like your feedback about these logos. After all, this is your County.
Please visit the voting page to cast your vote and provide any comments. Voting will be available until June 30th. We have also provided sample materials
that you may want to consider when casting your vote.
