Polk County Unveils New Logo (1)
Tuesday, January 8, 2019
DES MOINES, Iowa – January 8, 2019 — The Polk County Board of Supervisors recently unveiled a new logo for Polk County. The revamped design is representative of the inclusive nature of Polk County, from city to small town. The logo, which displays an outline of the Iowa state capitol building against a backdrop of downtown Des Moines and rolling green hills in the forefront, demonstrates the contrast in our communities, which come together to promote a strong and prosperous Polk County.
“The Board is committed to the continuous pursuit of improvement and innovation,” said Board of Supervisors Chair Tom Hockensmith. “We are excited about this new logo as it demonstrates that we are advancing with the growth of Polk County but still holding true to our roots and core values.”
Polk County introduced the logo during a soft launch within their departments beginning in the fall of 2018 and will be transitioning to the new logo during the next year. Polk County’s Information Technology department worked with a local graphic designer to develop the logo and will oversee the transition to the new logo and accompanying website. The new logo is more tech friendly and easier to view.
“This design represents the innovative spirit of the communities we serve,” notes Board of Supervisors Vice Chair Matt McCoy. “As Polk County moves forward with the times, we wanted a design that directly represents our commitment to serving both our urban and rural residents.”
