This is Texas (Cleburne slogan)

The city of Cleburne in Johnson County, Texas, is located not far from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. In October 2007, a new slogan was suggested for the city that was later adopted: “Cleburne: This is Texas.”

‘Cleburne: This is Texas’

Drew Fockler, the president of Trilogy Design Group Inc., spoke at the chamber’s quarterly luncheon about “What’s in Branding a Community?” His company has been working with the city of Cleburne and other organizations on developing a marketing slogan for it, or branding it.

“Cleburne is a changing community,” Fockler said. “The perceptions will change, and your needs will start to differ. We have to determine what those are. We have to get people excited about that.”

The slogan Trilogy proposed is “Cleburne: This is Texas.” Fockler unveiled proposed advertising images portraying pictures of people and places that represent Cleburne. One shows a child playing in water fountains with the words “Cleburne is splashy,” an allusion to Splash Station and other water-based activities.

The company hopes to launch the campaign by the end of January.
