New ‘Brand Identity’ for Youghal Set to Enhance Marketing and Promotion of Town PDF Print E-mail

A new brand identity and logo has been developed for Youghal.  Commissioned by Cork County Council, and developed by The Youghal Socio-Economic Development Group (YSEDG), the new designs and branding are set to be rolled out across a series of marketing initiatives in the coming months.
Speaking at the launch of the re-brand, Manager of the YSEDG Aileen Murray explained the rationale for the re-design.  “Youghal has taken huge steps in regenerating itself over past 8-10 years which had not been reflected in any one clear brand identity.  Youghal’s offering to holiday makers is significant and needed to be demonstrated.  With funding and support from Cork County Council’s East Cork Municipal District we believe we have replicated the improved ‘look’ and experience of Youghal as a destination for both domestic and overseas visitors through a new brand identity”.  Said Aileen.
