Incredible! - while life saving services are being cut to the bone, someone spent time and money drawing up plans on how to use the new logo, including how to change the positioning and colour dependent on whether good or bad news is being conveyed! (see p8-10).
And this !! "The icon represents an abbreviated version of the logo.Short, concise and recognisable, it can be used in playful ways,acting as a stamp for the Haringey brand. See the gallery for executions"
Whose head on the block next?
What an incredible waste of our money. Who drew all that up and why was it seen as a priority at a time when so many vicious cuts were/are being made?
A sign of a Council that is out of touch with the reality of life for most of its residents, and one where those making the decisions spend too much time in the company of people who have more money than sense and more greed than empathy.
Just because you're doing ok, don't assume everyone else is. What about the elderly / disabled and their families who used to make use of the Haringey services that have now been closed down? What about the increasing numbers of people now sleeping rough locally - or have you been too busy enjoying your life to notice. Maybe it's you who should check your privilege.
It's valid to criticise the decision to waste money on vanity projects, certainly at a time like this when things are so bad.
New logos and guidelines on how to use them may be common but that doesn't make it ok.
I agree that sadly the idiocy spreads wider than one political party!
