, now better looking

In case you hadn’t noticed, got a little bit of a makeover.  Our logo contest solicited a bunch of really great entries (thank you all for contributing), but the board concluded that the winner was the very capable Jesse Ross.  Jesse has produced a logo for us that evokes a road, but I think also speaks to the interconnectedness of transportation, land use and other issues.  We hope you like it, because we really do.

A little bit more about Jesse: he works for Sevnthsin, Northeast Minneapolis’s premier boutique digital agency, focusing on creating engaging social and mobile web and app experiences.  He teaches courses in web design, development and computer programming at the International Academy of Design & Technology in Orlando, Florida, the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, and Minneapolis Community and Technical College and he lives in North Minneapolis with his wife and two daughters.  Also, he graciously designs logos for non-profit organizations with little cash flow!

To only begin thanking him for his great work, the board will be sending Jesse a copy of Human Transit by Jarrett Walker.  We hope you’ll thank him too by visiting his website, following him on twitter and hiring him for your next graphic or web design project! is a non-profit and is volunteer run. We rely on your support to keep the servers running. If you value what you read, please consider becoming a member.

    The logo looks great. Jesse does good work, and that Seventhsin website is neat because stuff flies around on it.

    Thanks, Jesse!

    little known fact: each of the colors stands for a different member of the well-known mock rock band, The Monkees.
