Council Logo

We're all getting richer under Gordon's leadershipI was incredibly inspired yesterday when I read this post from Guido Fawkes showing the smart new branding for the Prime Minister's Progressive Governance Summit on Promoting Prosperity.

Progressive Governance logo
I was especially taken with the PM's dynamic new logo (see left) which puts me in mind of sport and peace - just what's needed at this time of difficulty with the Beijing Olympics.

I can't quite put my finger on the associations, but the logo reminds me of London 2012 and Formula 1, as well as the ancient Sanskrit symbol of peace.

I was so excited that, as I was staying up late into the night anyway, waiting for announcements of Tory victories in the Fenland and East Devon District Council by-elections, I'd use the time turning my artistic talents to redesigning the Hackney Council logo.

I've emailed my efforts (below) to Julian and Jamie this morning and I can't wait to see what they think of my design.

And you wonder why the Jewish population of Hackney all votes Tory and LibDem?
