Verviers is a city of Belgium situated in Wallonia, in the province of Liège. The municipality that we know today is the result of the union in January 1977 of the former communes of Verviers, Ensival, Heusy, Lambermont and Stembert. The city is the current capital of the municipality of Verviers which has 29 communes.
During the industrialization of the eighteenth century until the beginning of the twentieth century, it has been an important center of wool production, recognized worldwide for its technological innovations.
The rich history of the city is millenarian and currently, has about 50,000 inhabitants. Last week, on November 29, the city unveiled a new visual identity created by the Liège-based agency Synthèse.
Here’s an excerpt from Synthèse:
To bring Verviers into a new era, it was necessary to create a new territorial project and to install a new image. In connection with the participative study and positioning scheme set up by the agency Quidam, our studio designed a new look for the city of Verviers. Synthèse signs a global graphic system that will be used for office and territorial communication: city identity, city slogan, and identities for three districts, as well as a graphic charter.
