The Saranac Lake Brand

First we have to ask why

Different brands or logos are confusing and they dilute our position in the marketplace. We want to put in the time and effort to identify one cohesive message that resonates with both the community and our visitors, and that will represent the area as a great place to visit, live, and do business.

It's more than a logo or a tagline

A brand is a unique image and message that increases awareness of the community for both tourism and economic development when adopted and integrated consistently. A brand reflects the customer’s impression of a product, destination, or organization.

The process

In late 2017 the Saranac Lake region, in conjunction with the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST), embarked on a year-long process to build a new unified brand.

Building a brand is a five-step collaborative process:
1. Identifying a common goal
2. Research
3. Establishing the brand message
4. Design
5. Implementation

Brand Study

On April 17, 2018, ROOST and the Advisory Panel convened a public meeting to discuss the brand statement and the results of the brand survey. Find out more about the findings of that study by clicking on the Saranac Lake Image Brand Study

ROOST compiled the results and identified the recurring threads, then worked with the Advisory Panel, stakeholders, and the community on a final brand.
