The Economic Development Corporation of Dickinson County came to my company for an identity. Their new corporation was focused on the growth and development of their nine city council. Wishing to stay away from anything industrial, for fear it would retro-date them, we took a modern approach. As Dickinson County is quite flat, with their current businesses being very industrial, I kept the building generic, to promote an idea, rather than a specific building within the county. The shovel represents breaking new ground, while the nine stars mark the nine communities within the county.
