Immokalee Bulletin now sports Immokalee's 21st Century trademark
The Immokalee Bulletin has long been the community's well-read and much beloved newspaper and source of water-cooler conversation.
Beginning with this week's issue, the Bulletin now features a brand new masthead which includes the iconic symbol of the community's transormation, the "Immokalee, Florida's 21st Century" trademark.
"We hope you enjoy the exciting new look," said Bulletin Publisher Tom Byrd. "This logo, created by the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency, has become a positive symbol for Immokalee and its prospects for a bright future.
"Thanks to CRA Executive Director Penny Phillippi for use of this distinctive image that represents the great spirit and potential of the city," he added. "We are proud to serve the community and salute the dedication of the community minded individuals and contributors that make it possible."
The Bulletin is owned by Independent Newsmedia, USA, which also publishes newspapers in LaBelle, Clewiston, Okeechobee, Glades County and owns a chain of newspapers in Maryland, Delaware and Arizona.
Immokalee's 21st Century trademark has become iconic, even in its relatively short lifespan. The logo itself was designed by Seattle graphic artist Karen Wegenhenkel, working with Naples firm Relevanza, which coordinates publicity, government relations and social media for the Immokalee CRA.
