The Greenway Technical Committee is pleased to announce the launch of a new greenway logo.
The Greenway has grown and evolved over the past 20+ years and now, so has our look! The new design provides a modern take on the two features that best define The Greenway – the river and the surrounding park area.
· A ribbon of blue symbolizes the Red and Red Lake Rivers. (After all, if it weren’t for the rivers, there would be no greenway!) · The green ribbon symbolizes the park. · Crisp, bold lettering reflects a modern, urban feel, while the new color scheme gives an energetic feel that stays true to the nature of the area.
The logo was designed by Brett Lysne, a visual artist and designer who works in drawing, printmaking, and graphic design. Raised in Crookston, MN, he holds an MFA from Washington State University and a BA from the University of Minnesota, Morris. He has partaken in artist residency programs in Washington, Vermont, Finland, Minnesota, and at NDSU. In 2019, he launched an illustration and graphic design business, Sandwich Club Design Company. Currently Brett teaches drawing and printmaking at Minnesota State University Moorhead.
