Notice anything different? Our website banner received a little upgrade this weekend complete with a new look for LoganSquarist.
Over the past three years, LoganSquarist.com has evolved from a modest blog to a professional hyperlocal website. Built from the ground up, we’ve gone through a few design iterations, banners and website designs. You can view our original website design from three years ago.
This year, as we expand and grow as an organization and a team, we hope to continue to represent the diversity and character of the neighborhood we love so much.
Coming up with a design that represents an entire neighborhood of more than 70,000 Chicago residents is no easy task. We wanted the design to include geographical elements, historical icons and the unique vibe Logan Square is known for.
We also wanted a concept that demonstrated the variety of services LoganSquarist provides. In addition to being a hyperlocal news publishing site, we also organize monthly Neighbor Meetups and special events, update the neighborhood through a plethora of social media sites, send out email newsletters and maintain calendar and business listing directories. We’ve got a lot to offer, and we want you to know about it!
Our former senior graphic designer Frank Porcaro took this tall order and turned it into the website banner and other creative elements you’ll find on our social sites.
In the coming weeks, you also will find our new flier around town. Again, our hope is to better communicate what we do to the neighborhood and reflect the unique character of Logan.
We hope you like our new look! Let us know what you think!
