Small Town Charm, World Class Culture (Orange slogan)

"Small Town Charm, World Class Culture” is the 2008-issued slogan of the city of Orange, Texas. It is not known if “the Big Orange” was considered.

Wikipedia: Orange, Texas

Earlier this year, Imaginuity, Inc., a Dallas-based marketing firm, was hired to create an idea to help promote the community as well as the people and tourism opportunities available here.

Corbett Guest, president and CEO of Imaginuity Interactive, has spent much of the last several months in Orange and has grown very fond of the area.
Guest and his team set out to promote Orange as a city instead of just the city’s various attractions. The marketing plan was designed to include the natural resources of the area, the history, and various cultural aspects.

The team also solicited input from residents of Orange and that of nearby cities such as Beaumont, Port Arthur and Houston, who were interviewed by a third-party moderator not affiliated with Imaginuity.

The brand which was created to help promote the new Orange uses a variety of images, such as Oranges and blossoms and water, all framed by a large “O” with the tagline “Small town charm, World class culture,’ embodied in a banner under the brand.

ORANGE - City officials and a Dallas-based marketing group believe that with help from the public, Orange has the potential to be the premier destination in Southeast Texas.

“We envision a day when Orange is nationally recognized for its world-class resources,” Walter Riedel III, CEO of the Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation, told an audience at the Lutcher Theater Monday.

As first reported on BeaumontEnterprise.com, the foundation and Dallas’ Imaginuity Interactive premiered the catchphrase, “Small Town Charm, World Class Culture.”

Accompanying that slogan is an insignia showing orange blossoms that can be tailored to fit various attractions such as the soon-to-open Shangri-La Botanical Gardens.

The logo will make its public debut in January in broadcast and print advertising, and on city vehicles, stationary and other venues. A similar version can be viewed at http://www.WatchOrangeGrow.com
