Dear R Brown
You recently requested the following information: How much did the "living

We can respond as follows: The logo was designed in-house as part of our

Even if something is produced "in house", it must have had a cost associated with it or are you suggesting Council staff are now working for free?
Perhaps time has been allocated to a particular project code? Perhaps there is a budget for the staff member/s who produced the logo?
Dear R Brown
In response to your further request for information, to develop and implement the Living City logo took approximately 5 days in total. Graphic designers are paid an average of £25k, the cost to the council is approx £33k including oncosts. Based on 225 working days this therefore equates to £733.33.
