It's Time for a New Identity from Ohio Arts Council on Vimeo.

In cities and towns, across diverse Ohio regions, the arts communicate experiences and enhance quality of life—enriching education, building Ohio's economy, and telling stories of our communities. 

By strengthening investment and engagement in the arts, the Ohio Arts Council supports creative expression for artists, for organizations, for students and educators, and for the public.

It's time for a new identity. One that tells this story, and illustrates it.

One that captures our history, our state, and our future. An identity that looks at home in print, around town, and online. And emphasizes the role you play in completing the story.

Expression is an essential need. By better illustrating our story, we can better help you express yours.


The Ohio Arts Council began the brand discovery process with Fulcrum Creatives in early summer 2015. Throughout the next eight months we put our heads together to develop a logo mark that spoke to the history of the OAC and our future. Our mission and vision remain the same, and now our identity matches those forward-thinking goals. We are excited to launch the first phase of the updated in tandem with the new identity.
