I was just on the NoMa Business Improvement District's snazzy new Website and noticed a little saying at the bottom of their home page: "NoMa- It all comes together here!"
Now I'm not a branding expert, but NoMa's (new?) tag line sounds mighty close to the one used by Shaw Main Streets to describe Shaw: "Where DC Comes Together." It seems like all tag lines are easily subject to critique, but having two very similar tag lines for abutting neighborhoods is, to say the least, problematic.
The Shaw Main Streets tag line will likely adorn banners on telephone poles throughout Shaw later this year. Shaw Main Streets has been on the past 2 ANC2c meeting agendas for the purpose of seeking ANC2c's approval for hanging the banners, but both meetings have been cancelled by Chairperson Brooks. Have you had a chance to check out the proposed banner designs? They are available for viewing here.
