As I continue to work on Lowell.com in anticipation of an early March launch, I would like to reveal our new logo. I wasn’t 100% thrilled with the logo that was selected before, and I was concerned about a potential trademark issue in the last logo. As you may recall, the logo I selected had an image of Boott Mill in Lowell, which is owned by the National Park Service. While it may have been okay to use the image on my logo, I was concerned about the impact of using the logo for commercial purposes. I intend to make shirts, hats, mugs and other giveaways, and I didn’t want to run into potential issues down the road.
I think this new logo is colorful and fun, and it looks nice. What do you think of the new logo? I would love to hear comments. We are not 100% ready to launch yet, so minor changes could still be made if you have any suggestions!
We are getting down to the wire, and it’s getting very exciting. I look forward to sharing the website with you when it’s ready to launch. I may need some testers to check links, grammar…etc, and if that’s the case, I may reach out. I really appreciate all the advice and guidance that has been given to me throughout the development process.
