NEW SEAL!

The Long Island City / Astoria Chamber of Commerce has announced a NEW seal.


  • In an abstract way, the image captures the many different parts of the community that the Long Island City / Astoria Chamber of Commerce unites. The lines come from many different points, and then together...and UNITES them to a single focal point.
  • The image has the look of a bird in flight, with a wide span. This suggests "PROGRESS AND GROWTH".
  • This seal captures the old and the new of Long Island City / Astoria. Its font is a contemporary version of an OLD font.The image itself, is a gentle high tech image representing Applied Sciences. Applied Sciences will be an important part of the future of the communities as the Cornell-Technion campus begins to influence western Queens. Our Chamber will help attract high tech businesses that we will want to have locate in our neighborhoods.
  • The 'forward slash' in the Chamber's corporate name is treated as part of the graphic itself, making it look very natural.
  • The wire look is, in an abstract way, capturing the bridge architecture that connects all the Greater Long Island City communities with each other and with Manhattan.
  • The image is very clean and modern looking - and it is a DYNAMIC and three dimensional image.
  • This seal is distinctive and memorable.
  • While all designs are art, this design is both ART as well as a reflection of ARTISTS in the sense that it is fluid and an image that represents DESIGN ITSELF. The artists are an important constituency in the LIC community.
  • When we think of a seal that a restaurant, a bank, a salon, food store, insurance company, or any other business will place on their front door, or on their website, we think that the design is important. This is a simple, clean design that I think people will use.
  • The seal uses a variation of the the colors of the State of New York

The design of the new seal was create by Marvin Berk, WestGroup Alma Bank sponsored a contest, offered to award a winning artist or designer in the Greater Long Island City area with $500 for creating a seal to be selected by the Board of Directors of the Long Island City / Astoria Chamber of Commerce from entries.
