Downtown San Mateo is located in the San Francisco Bay Area (midway between San Francisco and Palo Alto, CA) and just north of Silicon Valley. Our Historic Downtown is known for its independent culture, diversity, art district, restaurants, and retail shopping.
Downtown San Mateo attracts startups and we have been the birthplace of companies like YouTube and Napster. We are known for our great restaurants and we recently won Rand McNally's "Best Small Town for Food" award. We have a strong art community with an ongoing Downtown Art Project-- an initiative to bring more public art to the community.
Downtown San Mateo is becoming known as an Arts & Innovation district. Things are changing here and we need a logo that reflects those changes.
We are in the midst of a rebranding campaign and need a new logo. Our existing logo is busy, out-dated, and cartoonish. We want a more sophisticated image that references a classic style with a newer twist. The right designer could potentially help us with additional projects as part of our rebranding efforts.
