MySeniorCenter Fun Facts

Tuesday, March 1st, 2022

Welcome to the 7th Annual Logo Edition! Last month, we included a link to 50 logos from across the Network and asked you to vote for your favorites. As recently as Feb. 22nd, there was a logjam at the top. But one logo emerged from the pack to grab the glory and be crowned the 2022 winner! This year's crop of logos was very deep. In most years, the average number of thumbs on a single ballot is between 4 and 6. This year was 7.7! That means that a typical person voted for over 7 logos. Well done!

2022 Logo Results


The Power of Logo

A logo is a component of your brand. It can be a visual representation formed in logotype (think Google) or a graphic symbol logo (think Target's red bullseye) or a combination of both. The goal of the logo is simple: to clearly communicate your image (or desired image) to your customers and prospective customers. As you saw from the contest, there's a wide range of creative design ideas that Centers have used. Some have a graphic with a tagline, which can help reinforce their message. Many Centers expertly use their logo and/or tagline to promote events and fundraising campaigns. As an example, Life After Fifty (LAF), the contest winner in 2016, has a LAF All The Way To The Bank fundraiser each year.

The Wisdom of Crowds

When nearly 1000 Senior Center personnel from across North America chime in with their votes, it's a statistically relevant sample and the perfect example of crowd-sourced wisdom. Unlike herd or mob mentality where people feed off the loudest voices in their presence, the concept of crowd wisdom relies on the average of independently-made decisions. And since this is a crowd of experts who are the best in the world at what they do, it becomes even more impactful.

All of the logos have something interesting about them, but your thumbs have spoken, so let's look at the winners!
