Porirua City Council statement on logo and branding

Please attribute the following to Porirua City Council Acting Chief Executive Roy Baker.

We want to set the record straight and give some context as there’s been some misreporting.

Our logo is not the smiley face avatars that we have used since 2017 on social media to make ourselves easily identified on Facebook and Twitter. Our avatars did not cost $98,000. The cost of these was $875.

Below is an image of our logo which is just a small part of our full rebrand and the associated costs for this are outlined at the bottom of this email.

We’re proud of our brand which is more than a logo and how we look, it’s everything we do and the way we interact with our customers. Our goal was, and continues to be, putting the customer at the heart of all we do. Our brand helps residents know what the council does and where their rates are spent.

Our brand is focused on the place we live. It helps promote Porirua as a visitor destination, attract new businesses and investment, attract new families to the area, promote pride among residents and encourage locals to spend more time and money enjoying their city and Council services. It can help create jobs and opportunities, support growth and local businesses and change the reputation and perception of our city.

Our brand reflects our city, uses friendly welcoming language, colours from our natural environment, bilingual signs, inclusive first person images, user-friendly websites and is consistent and recognisable across the city. Our brand is strong, authentic and realistic.

Below is a breakdown of the branding costs.

Strategy development, brand development, and brand guidelines $30,000
Design of collateral, print templates, electronic templates, animation, stationery, advertising, banners, certificates, rates letter and assessments
(includes the social media avatars described above)
$28,775
Brand architecture, naming and design for Te Rauparaha Arena (including Arena Aquatics, Arena Fitness, Arena Events, Arena Activities, Cannons Creek Pool) and Porirua City libraries (including five branches) $8,850
Photo library based on the new brand look and feel (includes the creation of content which is used Council-wide) $24,991
Update to brand guidelines incorporating work done in the gradual roll-out $5,260

Gordon Campbell: On Why Fair Pay Agreements Should Be Embraced

Are Fair Pay Agreements (FPAs) truly the work of the devil? Given the vehement response to them last week by (a) employer groups and (b) by their parliamentary friends on the extreme right, you could be forgiven for thinking these FPA things will mean curtains for commerce as we’ve known it for the past 30 years. Believe me, they won’t. Less excitable types will regard FPAs as heralding only a mild shift towards a more centralised form of bargaining over wages and conditions, much akin to what other successful economies (eg Germany) have recognised for decades...
