    When I first saw the icon at the Business Permit of the company where I work, I asked myself why oh why doesn’t my Business Permit have that stamp? Yun pala, it was just launched recently, and I had my business permit released way before the launch.

  9. Amie says:

    Ganda ng icon, as you said the visual rendering is simple but it embodies the perfect description of General Santos City & its vision…Go! go! Magandang Gensan!!

    1. bariles says:

      @Amie, it looks good on shirts. I had one printed. :)
      @Rammyboi, yeah, he really did. Thanks to him, may new branding na ang city.
      @Sleepless in KL, I agree with you. Something like Malaysia, Truly Asia, right? Kelan ka uwi?
      @Rue, hi! Basahin mo kasi ang background. Gosh! hahaha! :)
      @Jordan, simple and functional, di ba?
      @Tanchi, we should really be proud. :)

    Nice word catch! Congrats to the author of the idea…

    except: It is too italic. Hindi madaling basahin, puwes, hindi madaling maintindihan ang message… Pleasse improve the visual. Thanks

  13. Jordan Ray Quinco says:

    ok lang naman.. simple lang…

  14. tanchi says:

    magandang gensan!!! proud na proud!

  15. Toinks says:

    im sorry to say this but i guess i have to…in my opinion, the logo is a little too much of simplicity…it lacks warmth (color wise) considering it is a greeting and the first thing tourists will see…tsk tsk…its really hard to read…not catchy.

  16. Kritiko says:

    Sir moderator?
    Who is the creator of the icon? Can I animate Magandang GenSan Icon?

    1. bariles says:

      @Kritiko, go ahead. Then show it to us. :)

  17. MariTes says:

    Branding is a good idea! I like the colors and design of the icon. Simple:)

      @MariTes, thanks. With this new brand, we need everyone to do his share. :)

    Too bad, this came late and they have to use up all their old printed materials sheng. :)

    It’s the team of Egay Cadiente, the assistant department head of the City Economic Management and Cooperative Development Office. He is one artistic genius and one of GenSan’s young prides. :)

    i just have to say my piece. the “relaunch” of this greeting was discussed in boracay after the tourism convention in iloilo. present were rey billena, egay cadiente and myself. we were excited about the relaunch and we knew egay would be the best person to handle it.

    when i saw the rough product in our council of culture and the arts meeting, i was profuse in commending egay for the good work.

    so when it was finally launched i was one of those who wanted to get the jpeg or png image of the logo.

    being the kalilangan festival director, i insisted that this should be included in all promo paraphernalia. well, until i got word that there’s a plan to get a copyright for their logo.

    i go for artistic protection. but hey isn’t this suppose to be a battle cry for the city? hay naku, mabuti pang hindi na ginawan ng logo. senyo na lang yan.

    enough said.

    ormans last blog post..Hallelujah

    You mean, ayaw ipagamit sa inyo sa Kalilangan? Hmmmm… that’s weird. Sayang naman if we can’t use it for the Foundation Anniversary when it is one of the city’s major festivals. Then, 70th anniversary pa talaga! Tsk-tsk-tsk! :(

  23. orman says:

    @bariles – hay naku whatever.

    ormans last blog post..Hallelujah

  24. gensanite says:

    @bariles

    kudos to the people who made this happen… let’s look forward to having this as a national and international campaign… :)

  25. gensanite says:

    @orman

    hmmm… 😐

  26. Cathy says:

    I think the Icon was good, its totally the resemblance of the City, but the problem is the tricycle drivers here in Gensan, mga unfriendly at mga mukhang pera. I remember the incidence na galing ako ng city hall, ay pinababa ako sa tricycle para piliin ng driver yung tatlong pasahero, cguro P21.00 is far enough compared to 7 pesos for a single commuter. I think its quite disturbing for the city image to have this one.

  27. Silvia says:

    I think the Icon is a nice symbol of the magnificient city which is so popular among tourists.I am dreaming about visiting Gensan.

    Silvias last blog post..????? ?????? ?????????? ??????? ???? ?????? ??????

    i kind of agree with you. well, coz i’m a fan of postmodernist art kasi and i think gensan is not aiming for something like that. the feel of the icon is very laid back, warm yet refreshing, friendly, feminine, gentle… it’s not so “global” and tough. hehe. 😀

    anyway, i still congratulate those who are behind this campaign! i’d like to work with these minds soon. :) good luck!

  29. j says:

    don’t get me wrong. i like the campaign, generally. just some comments on the icon. hehe. it’s simple, and simplicity is beauty. 😀

  30. […] City Economic Management and Cooperative Development will conduct the Grand Launching of the “Magandang GenSan” […]

  31. nurse@work says:

    nice icon…..a way of telling the world that we are truly world class….it would be great if all General Santos institutions carry the icon in all of its communications…..print ads…..and in any other way that everyone would truly be proud of being a General!!!

  32. Nonoy says:

    nice one… hahahahhaha

  33. k8 says:

    the mayor was not the first one to say “magandang gensan” it was Jan Ced.
    the mayor even asked Jan Ced personally if he could borrow that phrase.
