West Point Lake – Troup County, GA
Troup County’s Oakfuskee Conservation Center is thrilled to announce its new logo and brand identity. This highly anticipated project promises to be one of the most impressive event spaces in the Southeast, and the new branding is a testament to the center’s commitment to excellence, heritage, conservation and community.
The brand was selected after a rigorous and collaborative design process, paying homage to the land’s history and natural wonders. Oakfuskee Conservation Center partnered with a local advertising agency, Atomic Brand Energy, to develop the logo identity. Their inherent curiosity, attention to detail and strategic thinking resulted in a design that stands out as distinctive and memorable.
Andy Fritchley, owner of Atomic Brand Energy and a Certified Brand Strategist, is really proud of this project and honored to be a part of the creative process. “The new logo nicknamed ‘The Special Tree,’ evokes a feeling of being surrounded by nature. It incorporates traditional linocut illustrations to infuse an indigenous and authentic style into the design. The wordmark’s letterforms are organic and irregular, mimicking the property’s natural elements, and each illustration was hand-drawn, then constructed using printmaking techniques,” he said.
The Oakfuskee branding suite will be prominently displayed throughout the venue, with a natural and grounding color palette featuring warm earth tones, calming greens and blues. The logo designs will also be showcased on parking and trail signage, creating a cohesive and welcoming experience for all who visit.
As the December grand opening is quickly approaching, Oakfuskee Conservation Center is excited to provide an unparalleled experience for guests looking to immerse themselves in the great outdoors and learn more about the region’s rich history. The event calendar for 2024 is now open and available for bookings. Whether you’re planning a corporate event, a wedding, or exploring the idyllic wonders of West Point Lake, Oakfuskee Conservation Center is sure to deliver.
