Willamette University grad student designs logo

On Oct. 7, the West Linn City Council agreed to update the city seal as the council’s contribution to the 2013 centennial celebration.

City staff commenced work on the project and recently presented a design that is now being shared for community comment and feedback.

The designer is a graduate student at Willamette University in the MBA program. He agreed to work with City Councilor Thomas Frank to update the existing seal, adding color to the design and incorporating ideas from the city council and residents alike.

The city originally held an online design contest for the seal with a cash prize of $400, but none of the submissions matched the council’s vision. Thus, the Willamette University designer was brought into the fold.

Community feedback may be entered through Jan. 6 at

The seal will be refined and formally adopted by ordinance at the Jan. 27 city council meeting.

The seal will be carved into wood for the city council dais and made into pins to distribute to the community and at conferences.

At the current time, the cost estimate for this project is $2,000.
