Unveiling the 35th Annual Pride Run Logo
The logo for the 35th annual Pride Run works to highlight the runner in a less literal and more abstract manner. The use of brush strokes in the pride flag colors creates a sense of movement, giving nod to runners as well as the pride flag. While a darker and less vibrant color pallet helps create a level of sophistication without being stogy, and maintains a fun vibrant look that embodies the Pride Run Race.
