What We Do
Marshall is located centrally in the heart of Missouri. The greatest asset of our town lies within the people that call Marshall home.
Although we are a small town with a rich farming history, we are progressive. We are a regional hub and leader in our community. We house our city and county governments, a college, large employers, etc.
We are open to all colors. Marshall has many colors that represent our community from high school sports teams to our college colors. We want the logo to have color in it but do not want it to be filled with a ton of different colors.
Neon colors are a no-go. Purple, orange, and pink would not represent our town.
Red, green, yellow, blue, grey, black, etc. would all be welcomed colors.
Our Ideas and Additional Information:
We want the logo to feel professional and clean. We do not want to encompass a bunch of different images in our icon. DO NOT USE the state of Missouri, courthouses, buildings, skylines, etc.
If the letters themselves could be worked into the icon, that would be great. We are not married to a certain "picture" for our logo.
We liked the visual inspiration of the clocktower because we have many of them in our town but are not married to using an image of any kind.
The emphasis should be on Marshall with "city of" being smaller. We are open to using an established year in the logo if it adds value and design.
We are open to using a tagline if it makes sense for our community.
