Redesign Sarasota's city seal (please)
When I saw Sarasota was having a contest for residents to re-design the city seal, I thought, "Oh that's cute, they included an example of something a child drew."
- Then I realized that is the city seal. Yikes.
Background: That seal, which features palm trees, a beach, a whale and some rocks (?) encircled by the words "May Sarasota Prosper," dates back to the city's incorporation in 1902.
- The Sarasota Police Department and the federal building downtown each have their own rendition of the seal. IMO, the federal building's version looks more like broccoli, a fish and some small potatoes being microwaved.
Between the lines: The design contest is part of a rebranding effort approved last year by the City Commission.
Think you can do better? Submit your design between May 1 and June 15. The contest is open to everyone. Details.
