Chamber Logo Concept Interpretation

We chose to develop a logo that was simple, timeless, and clear.  Our logo represents:

  • Carlinville’s square
  • Our similar, yet diverse population
  • Our imperfect, yet timeless qualities as a community, and
  • Our extraordinarily bright future IF we choose to cooperate, create partnerships, and work as a single team against a common opponent 

Value

  •  Partner with area businesses to promote economic and social vitality through education and leadership.
  •  Attract and encourage new business in our area
  •  Promote tourism and community events that bring visitors to the Carlinville area.
  •  Communicate with honesty and integrity.
