Apple Festival fixes backwards note

The North Carolina Apple Festival unveiled an updated 2015 festival logo that corrects backward facing musical notes. The Apple Festival logo had drawn some criticism for its emphasis on music rather than the apple crop.

"We have heard a number of comments about the musical notes on the 2015 North Carolina Apple Festival’s logo," the Apple Festival said in a news release. "This was not seen by us as a musical issue but how the elements of the logo flowed together. However, our community told us that the orientation of the musical note was an issue. So we have listened and corrected it."

"We had a lot of people that were musicians that complained," 2015 Festival President Melanie Matteson said in an interview. "We did what the crowd wanted."

The same graphic artist who designed the logo was able to fix it at no charge, she said.

"I just called and said, 'Hey can you flip this?' and they did. We're good to go."
