City of Charlotte: Research by RMD showed that there was no coordinated visual identity and the various marks being used were outdated and failed to represent the vibrancy of the rapidly growing city. The design is a contemporary mark paying homage to the city’s namesake, England's Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III, and a color palette of green reflects the city's reputation as the "city of trees."
Discovery PLace Science Museum: In addition to designing the exhibits for the museum's initial 70.000 s.f. of exhibit space, the firm was also charged with creating the museum's name and its visual identity. The logo is based on the infinity loop, representing man's infinite quest for knowledge.
City of Raleigh: Developed as part of wayfinding sign system for downtown Raleigh, North Carolina; the logo helps to visitors to recognize signage and information that is available for negotiating their way around the city.
City of Kannapolis: In an effort to emerge from the shadows of a declining textile industry, the City of Kanappolis developed plans to transition from its foundation as a mill town to a viable center of commerce. Rodger Motiska Design fashioned a logo that borrows from the city center’s historic colonial inspired architecture; incorporating a contemporary feel, yet speaks to the community’s distinguished past.
City of Rock Hill: To avoid being overshadowed by the rapid growth of the neighboring city of Charlotte and to guide their growth -- city leaders developed an ambitious plan entitled Empowering the Vision. The mark represents the six themes of the visioning plan: Business, Education, Historic Preservation, Environment, Arts & Culture, and Transportation & Utilities.
