“San Francisco Chamber Unveils New Logo, Brand Identity
Bold New Look and Feel for San Francisco’s Largest Business Network
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 2, 2013 — The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce today unveiled a new logo and brand identity to better reflect San Francisco’s unique and innovative business community. The new branding strategy amplifies the Chamber’s vision, and will be integrated into a comprehensive new website and across all Chamber platforms and publications in the months ahead.
The Chamber’s vision and brand identity is centered on the principles that matter most to San Francisco’s business community and the economy – connectivity, innovation and collective action. The Chamber’s new logo, created by celebrated San Francisco designer Primo Angeli with Stapley-Hildebrand, depicts these principles through a mosaic of icons symbolizing the city’s distinctive and diverse business landscape. The bold and vibrant mosaic forms a sequence of “C’s” denoting the Chamber of Commerce, and eliciting the notions of “city” and “community.” The new tagline – “Our City. Your Business.” – accompanies the logo conveying the Chamber’s two-pronged mission to serve the interests of business and San Francisco.
The SF Chamber’s new logo and tagline are the outcome of a strategic branding initiative led by the Chamber’s Board of Directors, President & CEO Bob Linscheid, staff and members to modernize the organization’s profile and emphasize the vibrancy of its membership. The project included strategic planning, market research, branding and other areas of focus. The efforts were supported by representatives from member companies including: PhilippeBecker, MacKenzie Communications, Stapley-Hildebrand, Gumas Advertising, BeyondPix Studios, Q&A Research Inc., the San Francisco Giants, Dignity Health and several other organizations.
The SF Chamber was advised on its brand identity by worldwide design icon Primo Angeli and his San Francisco-based agency partner Stapley-Hildebrand. The design team has received accolades for its work with local and global brands including the Asian Art Museum, Ben & Jerry’s, Boudin Bakery, Coca-Cola, Guinness, Hyatt Hotels, Molinari & Sons, the Golden Gate Bridge 50th Anniversary Celebration and many others. The San Francisco Chronicle recently declared Primo Angeli “S.F.’s poster boy” in recognition of his acclaimed packaging and poster design in the Bay Area for the past 30 years.

Cycling Hipsters Busted by SFPD on Market Near Fifth, San Francisco’s Hotspot for Bicycle Violation CrackdownsWednesday, November 28th, 2012
This is the new normal, with the SFPD routinely handing out tickets to bicycling hipsters on Market at or near the Powell Street turnaround crosswalk.
Like this, yesterday, when MACAFRAMA and fedora LEGO bag here got cold busted for, one presumes, running a red light and/or listening to tunes using both the left and right earbuds:

Can You Get a Perfect Score on the Eurocentric Flags of Market Street Identification Test? Probably Not!Thursday, January 13th, 2011
I was stumped by number one. (Is that red or orange? I figured it out a little later bit still, I was stumped at first.)
A perfect score is 11/11 although feel free to throw in the three at the bottom for an even 14, if you want to boost your results.
Don’t cheat or anything.

Here’s what you can’t do with your aircraft’s tail number. What you can’t do is get all creative to the point where people can’t read it.
‘Cause when you go flat-hatting over San Francisco’s Ferry Building in your aging Piper PA-34-200T Seneca II, you need to have your license plate legible for tout le monde to see. That’s how the system works.
What you can’t do is take away the middle part of the ID numbers leaving all the 0’s, 3’s, 6’s, and 8’s looking alike. That don’t fly.
The turbocharged Piper Seneca II, for the times when your Saratoga can’t get you there fast enough:

Anyway, people need to know who pilots are for the times they land on the wrong end of the runway ‘n stuff.
D’accord? Oui, d’accord.
Now, Go Forth And Sin No More.

I’ll tell you, the reason why the home county of the exchange student who was recently sexually asaulted in San Franciscois resting easy these days is that the media of said home country isn’t aware of the attack. And why’s that? Apparently, it’s the policy of San Francisco to not give out that kind of information. Per the SF Appeal:
“Police are not releasing information about the country the alleged victim is from in order to protect her identity, Tomioka said.”
I’m wondering how small a country has to be such that saying its name discloses the identity of any particular tourist in San Francisco.
Like if there’s a famous exchange program in Monaco (population 30k) and they send ten students a year to the States? That would seem to fit the bill, fair enough.
But what if the exchange student is from one of the following Big Ten tourist-producing countries (countries avec concomitant robust, aggresive media, of course)?
If the student is from one of these countries, I’d be hard-pressed to see how saying the name of the country would identify any particular person from that country. Maybe there’s a written policy, or maybe there’s an unwritten rule, the way the MSM won’t report routine cases of Golden Gate Bridge jumpings?
That is all.
You know what makes you better than all those melon farmers out there? It’s the fact that you hang your hat every night in the City and County of San Francisco. That makes you special. To celebrate you, the California Academy of Sciences is offering free admission for you (and your neighbors). Just match up your zip code with the handy chart below, gather up the necessary proof of where you reside, and head on over to Golden Gate Park.
And the nice thing about this free admission program is that it probably won’t be as crowded as it sometimes gets on the third Wednesday of the month, when everyone gets in sans tariff.

Thanks, Bank of America.
Do you have an official U.S. Passport Card in your wallet that you use to reenter the U.S after a trip to Mexico or Canada? Well that’s your secret, unless you’ve been walking on the streets of San Francisco. If so, there’s a chance that hacker Chris Paget has detected the RFID chip in your card from his minivan.
Welcome to the Brave New World.
Here’s the procedure for getting a card. And here’s where you can use it. Oakland-based Capture Technologies says that these $15 cards are “protected from forgery, fraud, tampering or alteration.” Are they really harder to tamper with than your driver license from the DMV? Who knows.
Anyway, deets after the jump.
