New logo: Newcastle, Australia

The Australian city of Newcastle is the second largest city in the state of New South Wales. On June 2, the Newcastle City Council unveiled a new logo which will be used to promote the city. Newcastle has a reputation of being a city of just steel mills and coal mines, and the new colourful logo tries to get rid of that reputation.

The new logo will be used in promotion to both business and tourists and well as the general public. The colours represent different industries, both old and new, and there are also colour variants of the logo to be used by specific industries. Together the colour combinations tell the story of Newcastle today and tomorrow.

The new look was created by the Newcastle agency Peach.

  1. It's a really lovely logo! I want my Newcastle (UK) to take some advice from Australian cities and sort their branding out!
