The district hired Davis Communications of Lancaster to recast its public image with a modern look. A steering committee was formed to narrow down choices developed by the firm from nine to three. District administrators unanimously selected the new logo, which was approved by the board last week. The district’s old logo – a circular seal with an open book in front of Joshua tree – has been used since the 1880s, and will still be used for formal documents and on commemorative plaques. Another reason for the new branding was to have standardization on materials the district gives out to the public and on in-house documents. “We want all of our brochures to have a similar design, what we offer to parents. We want external and internal communications to have the same design concept. Now they don’t,” Gallizzi said. “We have lost consistency in our image. Stationery, cards and fax cover sheets differ from school to school.” PALMDALE – Nike has its swoosh, Apple has its bitten apple and McDonald’s has its golden arches. Now Palmdale School District has updated its “branding” with a new logo and slogan with which officials hope the public will come to identify the district. The logo incorporates an image of a book’s pages turning, but also has an aerodynamic look and the slogan “Launching a lifetime of learning.” “It’s a little bit different image for the district,” interim Superintendent Roger Gallizzi said. “We wanted something with a modern flair with a color scheme and new design that reflects the influence of aerospace.” last_img read more

West Ham chief demands improvement from Bilic and players after Bournemouth loss

first_img1 West Ham manager Slaven Bilic West Ham boss Slaven Bilic and his players have been told to buck up their ideas by the club’s co-owner David Sullivan.The Hammers’ poor form continued at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday as they crashed to a 3-2 defeat to Bournemouth.It was the Londoners’ second straight defeat and stretched their winless run to four matches, and Sullivan is demanding an improvement.“I was very disappointed and frustrated with the manner of our defeat at Bournemouth on Saturday,” he told the club’s official website.“We went down there determined to bounce back from the Chelsea defeat on Monday, but we didn’t play as well as we know we can.“Slaven, the players and the staff all know we have to do better.“We have conceded too many goals early in halves in recent games and, while we’ve managed to get ourselves back into games like the ones at Southampton and Watford and at home to West Brom, there will be matches where we cannot equalise. That situation cannot go on.“I am sure that Slaven, his backroom staff and the team were not happy with what happened and they will think about it a lot over the next few days.”last_img read more
