Help us Define Downtown Orangeville’s NEW Brand!

Downtown Orangeville is undergoing a re-branding project with the design team at Aubs & Mugg.  Thank you to those of you who participated in the first survey – your feedback has been invaluable! The second survey is now available, and we are asking each of our members to please take about 10 minutes of your time to answer a few short questions. The design team is looking for patterns and trends in how people respond and the responses they capture will remain anonymous.

We are excited to see the new brand take shape, and we appreciate your support!
