Colwood wants brand new look
Colwood wants a new image. The city is aiming to “refresh” itself by changing its old logo showing Hatley Castle inside a circle. The request for proposals calls for a new visual identity that sends a message Colwood has a unique connection with nature, is poised for significant growth and change, has a youthful and growing population and reflects its multi-generational, healthy and active citizens who work and play in that municipality. It must also convey Colwood’s values of integrity, accountability and collaboration. Colours required: bright blue, black, white and green. The request closes Jan. 31. Graphics and photographs for Colwood’s new website are also expected. Applicants interested in designing the new website also have a Jan. 31 deadline.
