Winning concept for Unley’s sesquicentenary logo

As part of the preparations for the City of Unley sesquicentenary celebrations in 2021, Council sought ideas from some of its youngest residents in a competition to develop a sesquicentenary logo.

‘To celebrate our sesquicentenary year, we needed a logo to display so the public would be aware of our 150th and would join in some of our activities throughout the next year’ the Mayor said.

‘We asked primary schools in Unley opportunity to submit concepts. It was very pleasing that four schools offered drawings by their students.’

Judges included two City of Unley Councillors, with Mayor Hewitson and a graphic designer. The panel selected an entry by Year 7 student Cordelia from Walford Girls’ School as the winner.

‘Cordelia’s winning entry very cleverly picked up on a theme in the City of Unley’s branding by using the leaf design that characterises leafy Unley, known for its trees. Cordelia’s concept was then evolved into the final version of the logo, using Council’s corporate colours.'

 ‘Cordelia won a prize pack which included art supplies and books, and her school also received a similar gift. I was very pleased to be invited to Walford to meet Cordelia and College Principal Ms Rebecca Clarke, and to present them both with their prize vouchers’ said the Mayor.

 ‘I would like to congratulate Cordelia for her contribution to our sesquicentennial year, which will be widely used to promote events throughout 2021 - on street banners, posters and all Council’s communications.’
