A strong destination communicates one brand to residents, businesses and visitors that represents “who we are” as city. The brand represents the message that we want these individuals or businesses to remember.
All great cities have a strong brand that defines them.
The brand is deeper than a logo or a positioning line. The brand brings the entire city together as one community, similar to a large corporation.
Where does San Antonio want to be in 10, 20, 50 years?
What company today would we compare ourselves to?
What company or city do non-residents compare us to?
We can either have the world define us or we can control our identity and our destiny!
San Antonio has a unique opportunity to build a strong brand. Hopefully the foundation of the city brand will be adopted by organizations like the Chamber, Economic Development Foundation and San Antonio Real Estate Community. Integrate the quatrefoil into public works, development etc. One Destination, One Brand, One Voice!
The People of San Antonio embody the power and spirit of the city.
Drawn from a deep-rooted history and fueled by the progress of tomorrow, Pride prevails.
Whether artist, server, chef, restaurateur, golf pro, or merchant, the people of San Antonio show Passion for all they do, and the roles they play.
What lies beyond each bend of the river? What lies just over the graceful arch of the bridge? What lies past a courtyard gate, through a carved Mission door? Everywhere, there is a Promise of adventure, of knowledge, of welcome, of intrigue and, ultimately, great reward.
The quatrefoil combines world lore, legend, legacy and history. The quatrefoil is all over the city.
The Color: The primary logo color, dubbed “Corazon” represents the unbridled passion and heart of San Antonio.
Example of how the logo can be adapted:
