NC 4th of July
Festival Updates Look
12, 2010 –
Southport, North Carolina (NC)
- The N.C. 4th of July Festival has a new look for 2010. The
Festival under the direction of Don Parker, 2010 President has been
working on updating and redesigning its logo and website for over
The new festival logo includes
the words North Carolina 4th of July above the State of North
Carolina and Festival below the state which is covered by brilliant
firework burst and thirteen stars including the largest star placed
strategically on the map at Southport.
“The former logo served the
Festival well for many, many years. However, we felt it was time to
update the logo to better reflect the multi-faceted nature of the
North Carolina 4th of July Festival. First, we wanted to underscore
the fact that this is THE North Carolina 4th of July Festival and,
as such, serves as the State’s premiere destination for this summer
holiday. Secondly, we wanted to capture the Festival excitement in a
single brand that signals celebration, patriotism, and holiday fun.
I believe the new logo indeed refreshes our Festival image and
enhances the product,” said Parker.
The festival website plays an
important part of disseminating information about the events and
logistics to festival attendees. The new design of
www.nc4thofjuly.com is user friendly and is much simpler when
searching for information about a particular festival event. Major
events have their own page under the Events & Calendar section. This
design affords more educational opportunities as links to supporting
documents could be added. Links like the one on the Naturalization
Ceremony page, where you can read the Declaration of Independence,
The Constitution of the United States, and Bill of Rights or you can
take a sample naturalization test.
The new design also has a section
devoted to traffic patterns. This information is offered as a way to
assist attendees with planning their exit and entry into the city
during peak events such as the Parade and Fireworks.
The former logo will be archived
and used on special occasions. Rachel Spence, Designatorim, designed
the festival’s new logo. The Festival’s website was redesigned by
Bryan Woodard, USC Web Design & Video and most of the pictures for
the site were donated by John Muuss Photographic Artist.
