    The Mayor of London's office wants to rebrand London and is inviting agencies to tender to create the new image.

    Mayor Boris Johnson and his team have allocated a budget of £600,000 to create a new logo and identity for the city ahead of the 2012 Olympics, and want to have this in place by next spring.

    The Mayor’s office is inviting agencies to tender for four contracts related to the new identity: designing the logo; brand activation, which could include advertising and experiential activity; tracking; and evaluation and events.

    No logo is worth £600,000 - Paying that just means your dealing with a pretend design agency who are more worried about paperwork than design work.

    its not just a logo, its a complete marketting brief, you have to 'launch' the new brand too so things like adverts etc need doing too.

    ...and a hell of a lot of market research I would think!

    £600,000 seems cool for one re-branding project! I hope the final stuff looks good though.
