Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 5th 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 6, 2008 21 STREETVIEW Residents so-so on logo Evelyn Sintras Antonio Ruggerino Christine Viglienzone Wendy Routledge Maria Almasi Some Ashfield councillors have expressed their dislike of their new council logo which was introduced last month because of con- cerns the old crest -- a Scottish coat of arms -- didn't reflect Ashfield's multicultural resi- dents. The council spent $10,000 developing the new logo which includes different Ashfield landmarks and represents the area's eclectic mix of people. We asked people in Haberfield what they thought of both logos. Evelyn Sintras, of Haberfield: I did notice that (they'd changed their logo) the other day. The new one just doesn't look as official, I think personally. It's very modern. Maybe they're just moving with the times, I don't know. However, the old ones tend to be more traditional, more befitting the stature of a council. Antonio Ruggerino, of Bondi: I like the old one. I like the colours better. That one (the new one) doesn't really symbolise much. Christine Viglienzone, of Concord: I don't like the new one. It's messy and I don't like the colours very much. I suppose the others are a bit outdated but I think they could have done better with the replacement. Wendy Routledge, of Lilyfield: Without somebody explaining the new logo to me, it looks like modern art compared with the other ones which look like they're a symbol. Once it's been explained, I like the meaning behind it but I probably wouldn't have picked that up just by looking at it. Maria Almasi, of Ashfield: How much did this cost the taxpayer? The new one looks nice actually. The colours are good, I like them. The old one is old fashioned. This country is very new. OPINION 2283413i iww wk14 Attention all carpet buyers!
