Cherokee County Historical Society Unveils New Brand Identity

Today the Cherokee County Historical Society (CCHS) announces their new umbrella brand identity: History Cherokee.

The updated identity ushers in a new era for the Cherokee County Historical Society. The umbrella designation “History Cherokee” encompasses all of the current services of the Society, including the historic Rock Barn event rental site and the forthcoming Cherokee County History Center.

The Cherokee County History Center will have approximately 5,000 square feet of exhibit space and a research center that will serve as an exceptional cultural asset as well as an economic driver for the region. It is slated to open in 2021.

“This new branding launch brings us one step closer to making the vision of the Cherokee County History Center a reality,” states Executive Director Stefanie Joyner. “It is succinct and will allow us to share our work in historic preservation, local history education and the Rock Barn event venue in a universal way.”

Visitors can expect to see the new History Cherokee logo and branding on social media, at events, and at the Historical Society office at 221 East Marietta Street. A new website at HistoryCherokee.org is coming soon. The Society is currently available by appointment and the Museum Store and Canton Visitor’s Center is open Friday 10-4 and Saturday 9-12.

The new identity was contributed by Grant Design Collaborative, an internationally recognized brand design firm located one block away in Canton, Georgia. The firm’s clients have included such notable brands as Adobe Software, HP, Intuit, Herman Miller, Blackberry Farm, Mohawk Industries, Georgia-Pacific, and Muzak as well as local companies and nonprofits; including: Jyl Craven Hair Design, Cherokee Office of Economic Development, Cherokee County School District, City of Holly Springs, Service League of Cherokee County, J Michael’s Prime, and others.
