New Logo for the Design District

The Annapolis Design District recently held a Logo Design Contest, asking our members to submit their designs by October 15, 2017. The winning design was unveiled at the Anniversary Dinner Cruise on November 2. We will begin using the new logo in 2018, starting with the launch of a new website design and all visual branding materials.

Congratulations and thank you to Rob Davenport with D4 Design Concepts for submitting the winning logo design.
