Logo made in Deni

- By Bryanna Rossow

A new logo to represent AgShows NSW was unveiled on Sunday, and was designed right here in Deniliquin.

Deniliquin Show Society secretary Trudy Fanning designed and developed the logo as part of a state wide competitio­n held by the Agricultur­al Societies Council of NSW for the rebranding of AgShows NSW.

The competitio­n was open to the general NSW public and all show society groups.

Mrs Fanning said she was “really surprised” when her design was chosen as the winning logo.

“I was honestly a bit dumbfounde­d,” she said.

“It didn’t really sink in until at the AGM, where I was invited to Sydney and the new logo was unveiled.”

The new logo will be used at all NSW shows, on the AgShows NSW website and social media.

“It’s really exciting that my design was chosen and I am pleased that I was able to help put Deni on the map,” said Mrs Fanning.

While Mrs Fanning said it was a challenge to encompass such a diverse state as NSW into one logo, her vision for the logo was to be inclusive of what is important to the region.

“I thought about our show society and what is important to us — our community, volunteers and farming diversity, so that was the vision I went in with,” she said.

“I started off with a Google search of various other farming and volunteeri­ng logos and found that the blue, green and orange were the best colours to represent my vision.

“To break the logo down, the shape represents New South Wales, the mosaic pattern represents the regions and groups within the state and the colours represent our volunteers, community and our farming diversity.”

Mrs Fanning said it felt great to be able to give back to AgShows

NSW, while representi­ng Deni and the region at the same time.

“The past couple of years we’ve had to put a few things on the backburner, but AgShows New South Wales has been a great support and great mentors,” she said.

“They helped immensely with up-to-date legislatio­n in regards to COVID and what we needed to do to put on our shows in 2020 and 2021.

“It’s been a tough few years, but it felt great to put a bit of positivity back into the space.”

“It’s really exciting that my design was chosen and I am pleased that I was able to help put Deni on the map.” —Trudy Fanning.
