Phelan Piñon Hills Community Services District Adopts New Logo
The Phelan Piñon Hills Community Services District adopted a new logo at their September 16, 2020, regular meeting of its Board of Directors.
Created by District employee Jennifer Oakes, the logo represents the District’s location where the “Mojave Meets the Mountains.” The elements represented in the logo feature the mountains, which can be seen throughout the District, the foothills of Piñon Hills, the desert area of Phelan, and the sun above the mountains representing the abundant sunshine received in the area, an average of 284 sunny days per year.
The new logo replaces the original logo adopted for use in 2008 when the District formed. The new logo features two colors and is in a modern format to allow for better results in applications from printing to social media. In contrast, the original logo included eight colors, detailed design elements, and was less adaptable for purposes such as social media and embroidery. The District expects to save between 22-30% on printing and embroidery expenses due to fewer colors and details.
“We are excited to implement our new logo, especially as we move forward with increased public outreach for our new projects, such as the Phelan Park Expansion,” stated Don Bartz, the District’s General Manager. Bartz continued, “While the original logo served us well, as we rounded the tenth anniversary of our District, we began to realize the logo needed to be modernized. With input from our Board of Directors and staff, we developed the new logo and are proud to debut it to our residents and the entire High Desert community.”
