In 2012 Penrith Council introduced a new brand for Penrith. The brand was developed in consultation with a range of stakeholders to enhance the image of Penrith as a Regional City; communicate the benefits of living, working, visiting and investing in Penrith and let everyone know that Penrith is Here.
The personality, aspirations and features which are unique to the people and the city of Penrith were identified in this consultation process. We value our lifestyle, new ideas and ways of thinking and ambition. We are active, adventurous, grounded, positive and uncompromising. These traits provided inspiration throughout the brand design and development process.
At the heart of the Penrith brand strategy was the concept of Penrith as the ‘New West’; a place of new opportunitiesand untapped potential that is forward thinking, industrious and independent. Penrith’s brand positioning closely reflected the city’s vision for the future:
The brand is owned and controlled by Penrith Council but it has been designed to be embraced and activated across all levels of the organisation and our community. There are three facets to the brand; a community mark, council markand a New West mark which work on
their own or together to promote Penrith as a place of limitless opportunities.
The community mark is a friendly and bold logo to reflect the personality of the Penrith community. While it’s designed to put Penrith on the map, it acknowledges that it’s not just the place that makes Penrith great - it's the people.
Penrith’s open spaces and lifestyle make our city unique. Council fosters these characteristics through the provision of services and uses the simple word mark on all Council communications and online platforms to support these efforts.
