The Sheriff was the first to notice that our County Executive took it upon herself to decide that not only did the county needed a new logo, but that she was going to be the one who would determine what it would look like. As a result, we end up with this kind of meaningless, utter tripe that we’re going to spend all sorts of taxpayer money rebranding everything in the county with it. What these two nondescript squares are supposed to mean or what significance they may hold for the county is anyone’s guess, and it certainly will keep people guessing for a long time, should this actually come to pass. What is certain though is that government bureaucrats are utterly unqualified for any task involving graphic design and marketing much moreso than they are unqualified to determine a budget that might actually reflect the anticipated spending levels of a government agency.
Because I’m a concerned citizen who very much wants to support the success of our county government, I thought I’d take a moment to craft an alternative design for the county’s apparently desperately-needed rebranding effort that I would offer to Prince William County free of charge. My design criteria are that the rebranding accurately reflect what the county is, utilize a widely recognized symbol that would easily be associated with county government, and strongly communicate the sense of awe and magnificence that residents, visitors and business partners should have when they think of Prince William County government.
Dear readers, may I present you with my version of the County’s logo, which I call “Queen Melissa The Merciful.”
