It’s HERE!

We are so excited to present to you our new Chamber logo!

The logo, created by Jake Frye with The Northeast Georgian, features an “h” filled with a mosaic of bold and vibrant icons symbolizing distinct features of our county. The new tagline – “It’s Happening Here” accompanies the logo conveying the economic vitality present in our county.

Our Board felt that the more modern colors, the energy of the logo and the clean font express a more friendly and inviting brand that appeals to a younger audience, while celebrating the attributes that make us unique and paying tribute to the many industries that support economic prosperity.

The new logo and tagline are the outcome of a strategic branding initiative led by
a special committee of the Chamber’s Board of Directors and President. The project included strategic planning, market research, branding and other areas of focus.

“The new logo marks the beginning of a new chapter for our Chamber,” said Amy Hulsey, Chair of the Chamber Board and Vice President of Community and College Relations for North Georgia Technical College.  “As we focus on promoting tourism and business development for Habersham, we believe this new logo can help set us apart from other surrounding counties and be very eye-catching and memorable.”
