In an effort to modernize the City of Fall River, improve service to residents and invest in Fall River’s ongoing economic development/tourism efforts, the City of Fall River has begun a project to redesign the City of Fall River’s official website. The new website- which will be built with Revize, a national leader in municipal web design- is expected to be ready for launch by late 2022.
To complement the new website, the City is searching for a new official logo through an open-entry design competition. The public is invited to create and submit their own original ideas for a new City of Fall River logo during the entire month of September, with the deadline of 5:00P.M. on Friday, September 30th.
Eligibility is not limited to professional graphic designers and participants are welcome to submit artwork that is created digitally or in traditional mediums, such as paint, pencil, marker, etc. Artists are asked to incorporate the unique character and history of Fall River, but must make sure that their design is simple enough to be easily replicated in black and white, is easy to see from a distance and can be translated into more complicated formats like embroidery. The entry form and complete submission guidelines (including an entry guide with inspiration and the suggested color palette), are available online at https://www.fallriverma.org/contest/.
The winning artist of the design contest will work with the City to modify their entry to fit the many needs of a City logo. The winning artist will receive a $500 prize, sponsored by Mayor Paul Coogan. The winner will also be recognized at an unveiling ceremony for the new website and will be gifted with merchandise featuring the new logo.

The contest will be judged by a panel of residents, artists, City leaders and business owners who have been invited by the Mayor to serve on the Website Redesign & Rebranding Advisory Committee. The Committee will provide feedback during the development of the new website and will help select the winning entry to the logo design contest.
“Our community is full of passionate people who take pride in our community,” said Mayor Paul Coogan. “We have so many talented graphic designers and artists living and working in Fall River, so it made sense to open up this opportunity to the public. Both the new logo and the new website will more positively represent Fall River and the great things that happen here every day. I can’t wait to take a look at the entries!”
