City’s New Brand Created from IWU Partnership

(MARION, IN) January 27th, 2017 – The City of Marion is unveiling a new brand and identity through a partnership with an academic group at Indiana Wesleyan University.

In April of 2016, Marion Mayor Jess Alumbaugh reached out to IWU, while a group of professors had recently stimulated an academic initiative comprised of about 20 students with big desires to make a lasting impact in the community through design. The group initiated discussions with leaders who had been exploring the next step in furthering a new identity to replace the decade-old catch phrase/logo, “Make it Marion.”
