  10. 10. VISION: 58 RIGA NEIGHBOURHOOD LOGOS BY 2014 <ul><li>Logos developed by a professional design team </li></ul><ul><li>A proactive approach: first the designers develop logo proposals, then residents critique them </li></ul><ul><li>Active citizen involvement: crowdsourcing, discussion forums, interactive surveys, neighbourhood meetings and simulation games </li></ul><ul><li>Neighbourhood residents have many opportunities to discuss the neighbourhood brand </li></ul><ul><li>Neighbourhood logos comply with a set of visual guidelines and references to Riga (e.g. Riga keys) </li></ul><ul><li>The development of logo focuses a neighbourhood’s identity, uniting in the process various ethnic, age and income groups </li></ul><ul><li>Neighbourhood logos are unofficial and can be created privately, without municipality involvement (cf. Art Lebedev and the Moscow Metro) </li></ul><ul><li>However, let us not forget: </li></ul><ul><li>City brands are built over centuries; we can initiate the process </li></ul><ul><li>No need to take neighbourhood brands and identities too seriously, as we are all Rigans </li></ul>
