June 3 Meeting Notes

Taylors TownSquare

Welcome & MC: Alex Reynolds, Taylors FBC 

Purpose of Meeting: Taylors TownSquare is a place for relationships to be made, to learn from and be inspired by others, and to find common goals for the Taylors community.

Agenda Items: Taylors Community Brand Discussion, Greenville County Planning Commission

The Greenville County Planning Commission presented a variety of logos as a result of the Taylors Community Visual Preference Survey we participated in at the May TownSquare meeting. We had a great time discussing the different ideas and sharing feedback with one another. A few of the general thoughts discussed as a group included:

  • the brand being representative of Taylors as a whole rather than exclusively the Mill area 
  • the focus centering on “historic”/”downtown” Taylors as opposed to the entire zip code of Taylors 
  • preference to an original look as an alternative to the popular vintage look

Keep in mind that this was just part of the initial exercise in the branding process and not in any way a final brand. If you have additional feedback or ideas, contact Scott Park.
