The crucial development of a new brand for the City of Whyalla has been completed and is set to be rolled out across the city.
The council began a rebranding process in November 2015, engaging experienced consultants Algo Mas Marketing to undertake the extensive process involved with developing a new city brand.
The process included extensive public consultation, city profiling, and the development of imagery representative of the city.
The council officially adopted the new brand at its June council meeting, and since this time council staff have been busily finalizing the relevant documentation to allow for a roll out of the brand.
A recurring theme that came through powerfully throughout the engagement process was the incredible, natural environment and uniqueness of Whyalla, and its caring community that values diversity and a strong history and culture.
Inspired by Whyalla’s creative and arts community, the brand developers visualized all of these wonderful attributes of Whyalla as paint strokes coming together to encapsulate in the form of a sphere, which also presents as a wave, referencing the city’s costal characteristics.
The colour palette of the new brand was inspired by colours from Whyalla’s landscape which were taken directly from its sea, sunset sky and land.
The typography used touches on Whyalla’s industrial past, while also referencing its natural surrounds, reminiscent of the cracks seen on the shingle beach, and highlighting the community’s ability to come together and look towards the future.
‘Unearth’ has been adopted as the city’s rejuvenated strapline, which will be used to promote Whyalla’s tourism and economic development activities.
The strapline will be used in a suite of words, such as ‘Unearth opportunity’, ‘Unearth the lifestyle’, ‘Unearth beauty’, suggesting that there is a lot more to be discovered in and around Whyalla than many may believe.
The results of the public consultation process and extensive city profiling were used to develop a new logo, accompanied by a rejuvenated ‘strapline’, which will now be rolled out across the city’s infrastructure, services, and amenities.
The logo appears on City Council publications and stationery, and is available to local organisations and groups wishing to incorporate it within their own programs and promotions. The Tourist Centre has developed a range of souvenirs featuring the logo. These include T-shirts, polo shirts, stickers, cloth badges, stubby holders, caps, teaspoons, badges, glassware, pennants, etc.
