Forsyth County government unveils new logo, motto

FORSYTH COUNTY — Forsyth County has rolled out a new logo and motto to help highlight the county’s resources and high quality of life.

The logo features a family of three and its dog along the Big Creek Greenway and beside Lake Lanier looking at a tree in front of Sawnee Mountain. Included are the county’s name and 1832, the year it was incorporated.

The county’s new tagline is “Your Community. Your Future.”

Thoroughbred Design Group of Alpharetta created the new logo, the first since 1986. It drew on community input from an online survey last year.

According to Forsyth officials, survey participants described the county as “family-friendly,” felt quality of life was its most important aspect and said the lake was the most valuable physical trait.

A group of county employees and volunteers also reviewed the project.

Rollout of the logo will be incorporated over time, starting with the county’s website and social media profiles.

In time, it will be used on letterheads and businesses cards as supplies with the old logo are depleted.

In a statement, County Commission Chairman Pete Amos praised the changes.

“Forsyth County is a great place to call home and I think the new logo and tag line really capture and represent that,” he said.
