Announcing a New NALIT Logo!
Grace White, GIS analyst/cartographer for the Wisconsin Legislative Technology Service Bureau (LTSB), submitted the winning logo (above) in the National Association of Legislative Information Technology's (NALIT) April 2019 logo contest.
Contest applicants were asked to design a logo that would represent NALIT members and the association’s purpose and mission, and which would also:
- Complement or harmonize with the new NCSL logo (top left ), so that both logos could work well when used together.
- Be appropriate and flexible enough to be used in a variety of ways, such as on web pages, lapel pins or T-shirts, on social media and in print publications.
- Have a limited number of colors, with a design that can work in black and white as well as color.
- Have typography and details that are readable and visible, even on small-screen mobile devices.
"Grace has an incredible eye for design," says Jeff Ylvisaker, director of the LTSB. “She created LTSB's logo, designs user interfaces for software applications and websites, and creates beautiful maps for the Wisconsin Legislature. We're honored that she won and very proud of her!”
More than 160 members of NALIT cast their votes, with the winning logo receiving a clear majority of the vote. The new logo will replace the old logo, which was selected as NALIT’s logo in a similar contest in 2004.
