6 Cities and States Reinventing Themselves Through Branding

6 Cities and States Reinventing Themselves Through Branding | Geography AS Level | Scoop.it
Is it possible to distill the character of a city into a single, striking logo? In some ways it seems crass to (re)brand a place, reducing the complexity of a locale into to what is, essentially, a marketing campaign. Done well, however, the efforts can unite locals and lure leisure travelers, who bring with them a major financial boon (check out the World Bank’s map of international tourist dollars from the past four years--there’s a lot of cash involved). But have we reached peak branding?
Miss Lask's insight:

How do these logos create a brand image?
