Where Did the Logo Come From?

In 1996, we wanted to find a new way to identify our bank to the public in a positive, consistent way. The bank was formerly known as Minster State Bank, but we needed a name that would help us expand geographically and graphic elements to match.

With the help of an outside firm, we developed the new name and logo you can see today. How did we come up with the ideas for the logo? We identified a few key areas that defined Minster Bank’s image:

  • • Warm
  • • Hometown
  • • Focused on people and families
  • • Fun and upbeat
  • • Natural
  • • Current
  • • Stable and secure
  • • Welcoming
