Lebanon Arts & Culture Commission
Lebanon Artways branding project
The Lebanon Arts and Culture Commission is seeking a graphic treatment for the wordmark
“Lebanon Artways.” The goal of the Commission, and the reason behind this project, is for the
graphic treatment of the Lebanon Artways wordmark to be a branded, iconic, and instantly
recognizable visual cue to the work commission is doing to bring art to the community, support
local artists and art organizations, and enrich the lives of City residents and visitors.
The Lebanon Arts and Culture Commission was established at the end of 2018 for the purposes
1. Promoting arts and cultural activities throughout all three wards of the City of Lebanon;
2. Cultivating relationships, activities and opportunities to grow Lebanon’s cultural
3. Supporting the development of public-private partnerships that enhance the quality of life
and economic vitality in Lebanon;
4. Establishing policies for consideration and adoption by the Lebanon City Council for the
integration of arts into all municipal buildings, structures, and spaces;
5. Establishing policies for consideration and adoption by the Lebanon City Council
defining prospective spaces for, forms of, and processes for the adoption of public art in
The members of the Commission felt the name was unwieldy and, in essence, created
“Lebanon Artways” as a d/b/a to brand output, projects, support and partnerships provided by
the Commission.
Communication goals/list of key ideas to express through design
List of adjectives/phrases for creative direction:
Family friendly
Creating a path to the arts
Inclusive (of performing and visual arts)
Encouraging (new experiences)
Made in Lebanon
Crossroads of New England
Rural life with big city cultural opportunities
The Commission is seeking to strike a balance between being an official City of Lebanon
Commission with the realization that when spoken or used in social media and hashtags,
“Lebanon” is often shortened to “Leb.” Thus, the commission plans to secure social media
accounts under “Lebanon Artways” and “Leb Artways” and will take an evolutionary approach to
the hashtags #LebArtways and #LebanonArtways. Any graphic treatment needs to be able to
accommodate either the “Lebanon Artways” or “Leb Artways” approach.
Tag line
In addition to the wordmark, graphic treatment should provide for a tagline use case. The tagline
could vary. Initially to build brand awareness that Lebanon Artways is a part of the City
government, it may be “Lebanon Arts and Culture Commission.” The tagline may be used to
reflect the goals of the Commission, and may evolve to a phrase such as “Creating a path to the
Intended audiences and uses
The work of the Commission is intended to touch arts creators and arts consumers throughout
the City. The Commission itself does not create content; it seeks to connect the individuals and
organizations that do with the residents and visitors who are both active and passive
consumers. Active consumers are those who seek out arts experiences -- through
performances, exhibits, classes, purchases; Passive consumers of the wordmark are those who
see it in the normal course of their day on posters, farmer’s market banners, signs, community
boards, etc.
Current Commission projects that would use the Lebanon Artworks wordmark include:
Glen Road skate park sign
Wall of the downtown Rail to Trail tunnel
City Fountain winter cover-up panels
Electric car charging station
Traffic circle artwork
Dedicated gallery space in City Hall
The wordmark design should render from very small (favicon.ico 32x32 pixels) to very large, for
example on a banner at the Farmer’s market or craft fair.
Please provide (1 color or spot color where needed, i.e., screen printing; RGB or CYMK where

Print versions, horizontal and vertical and how that would look in average ¼ page, ½
