Report: Montana State Library Commission to Vote on New Logo Design
From The Daily Montanan:
The Montana State Library Commission will consider a new logo design after rejecting a similar design in August.
The new design’s color scheme incorporates colors from the Montana state flag, according to a memo from the rebranding subcommittee to the commission on the new design, and keeps the original open hexagon shape and prism concept “that reflects transforming information into knowledge.”
During a June meeting, Commissioner Tamara Hall expressed opposition to the original design when it was first unveiled, saying it looked similar to an LGBTQ+ rainbow. She said the design would set off a “firestorm” and called the rainbow a “political, explosive” weapon.
Hall was one of four commissioners to vote against the originally proposed design in July.
