We're loving our new logo! It is the work of Wendy Spalsbury, T. Payton, and their fabulous team at OneCreative. The firm they founded in 2002 creates Branding, Advertising and Direction for its clients.  Contact them via their website, or at 889-9700.


The N-I25 Icon represents “highway” and the coming together of individual businesses in the geographic area to promote and benefit one another. The diamond with the apex pointing up is representative of North on a compass.
