City of Rapperswil-Jona: Development of the design program
The merger of the city of Rapperswil and the municipality of Jona was based on the principle of completely reorganizing the administration. The goal was not simply to merge, but to question everything, to keep the tried and tested, to optimize overall and, where necessary, to introduce new and innovative solutions. With the same conviction, the project of the design program was approached.
The design program adopted by the City Council is based on the principle of transparency of the city administration. Citizens should be able to see who has provided what services, which department of the administration has sent something or where the city finances or supports initiatives and projects. For this purpose, a corresponding brand concept was developed, which defines the control of all communicative measures of Rapperswil-Jona.
