Rebranding the FIB district and establishing a one-source portal to market the district to prospective visitors, tenants, developers, and investors was a crucial step and major achievement in progressing the Boulevard District.
The BID developed marketing materials that included a new logo, tagline, e-newsletter templates, press kit, e-newsletter, image bank coordination, website, stationary, and signage concepts.
The branding project was set up with the goals of attracting more industry and supportive services for BID workers (restaurants, cleaners, gym, pharmacy, etc.).
The heartbeat of Boulevard CID is logistics, which inspired the BID to develop a brand-mark that abstractly communicates this area as a dynamic hub of commerce that is Fast Moving and Forward Thinking. The overlapping arrows are intended to illustrate this movement and are rooted in the famous “Atlanta Gateway” sculpture commissioned for the area in 1967 by famous artist Peter Forakis. The monumental sculpture’s geometric form (and size) is unmistakable and serves as great inspiration for the brand. The overlapping arrows originated from the history of the area while allowing the BID to utilize the graphic forms in numerous ways. The result is a family of materials consistently communicating the brand message of Boulevard CID.
