Truckee Tomorrow

Place-Based Marketing Initiative - Delivers Truckee Brand Identity

Place-Based Marketing Initiative - Delivers Truckee Brand Identity



In 2015-2016, the Truckee Chamber of Commerce facilitated a Place-Based Marketing Initiative on behalf of two funding groups  - the Town of Truckee and the Truckee Tomorrow Public / Private Partners.

This project delivered the creation of a Truckee Brand Identity (logo, tagline, personality, voice, tone, color palette, fonts, etc.) and a redesigned web site (launching summer 2016) that expands beyond tourism and delivers community and business resources / economic information.

Truckee Brand Oversight / Management

The Truckee Chamber of Commerce is the official Truckee Brand Identity owner and overseer, ensuring appropriate legal use and guidelines are followed for a consistent marketing message that unites Truckee in the minds and hearts of our community, visitors and business owners.
