Work on new city slogan and logo put on hold

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – Creation of a new slogan and logo for Aberdeen has been put on hold after debate about whether or not Mayor Travis Schaunaman’s company (Production Monkeys) should be allowed to submit an idea.

The potential conflict of interest discussion came up at a recent city council meeting.

Gail Ochs, President of the Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce, has asked Production Monkeys as well as Troy McQuillen’s Company, McQuillen Creative Group, to stop work on a slogan and logo until the matter has been resolved.
