On The Beat Industry News In Brief

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis launched a new logo and rebranding initiative this summer.

Officials say the images reflect the Children’s Museum’s status as the nationwide leader among its peers. The Indianapolis museum counted 1.3 million visitors in 2009, and it boasts 31,000 member households.

Children's Museum The new logo will appear on out-of-state billboards and television commercials this summer. Later in the season, the material will appear in local advertising and on museum signs.

 Meanwhile, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art wants to polish its image.

In a recent request for proposals, Eiteljorg officials say they’re looking for a “new creative direction,” which the museum can “execute with existing resources.” Firms who want to submit proposals should provide “examples of successes on limited budgets.”

The museum is holding information sessions on June 29 at 4:30 p.m. and June 30 at 8:30 a.m. Those interested in attending should contact tharris@eiteljorg.org.

  • Seriously?
    They paid someone to create that thing? They could have done better with a $99 "create your logo" web site or my 16-year-old niece's flair for Illustrator. And, IBJ, you failed to cover the really notable part of this travesty. The Museum used an out-of-state "strategic consulting" firm who "created" the logo with insight from "interviews and focus groups." How inspiring. How inventive. Sigh...

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
