Village of Hythe refreshes look with new logo, website

The Village of Hythe has a new look.

A new website and logo were unveiled at a launch party Thursday evening at the Hythe Legion.

Chief Administrative Officer for the Village of Hythe, Leona Hanson, says rebranding was an idea that come out of planning council did in 2018 and 2019.

“One of their priorities was to rebrand the community and have a look at positioning it for the future and capturing the essence of the community.”

She adds input from the public gathered in surveys went into the design of the new look.

“With surveying (of) both residents and the business community, (also) council and staff were involved through the whole process. We feel that we’ve captured what our residents feel about the community and the strength of it and what it means to them.”

Hanson says the new website will have a more modern look and will be similar to what a lot of other municipalities use.

“The areas of business the Village is involved in and user-friendly and easy to navigate and tie it in with our business community from an investment attraction perspective. Our Facebook will be tied into it.”

Hanson adds the new website will also take advantage of some new social media features.
