The words “Lenexa City Center” must be in the design. Additionally, graphic elements from the city’s logo may be incorporated into the design. These elements include a star and wheat. Our goal is to have people understand the connection between the two logos, as well as the connection between the City of Lenexa and Lenexa City Center.
This logo will be used in marketing materials, way finding signage (stone inset), decorative banners, monument signage, websites, social media, road signs, public buildings, embedded in street crossings, letterhead and business cards.
We would like a A “full” logo with text and graphic/icon, with the option to use the text or graphic/icon separately in certain instances.
Founded in 1869, Lenexa is a well-planned community located about 12 miles south of Kansas City, Mo. The 34.3-square-mile city has a resident population of about 49,000, with a similar number of people who work here. Lenexa enjoys a healthy business base and is considered a city of choice for a variety of high tech and bioscience companies, as well as a number of national and international headquarters.
Residents are drawn to Lenexa in part because it is an attractive and safe city, with a rich history and a strong, hometown sense of community spirit. Known as the City of Festivals, Lenexa hosts numerous celebrations and events each year, which draw visitors from the greater metropolitan area and beyond.
Citizens and visitors alike enjoy Lenexa’s established neighborhoods and commercial developments, beautiful parks and trails, and quality roads and other infrastructure. Lenexa has earned the reputation as a leader in local government initiatives such as public safety, development issues, festivals, stormwater management, communication and the use of technology.
