The team behind a multi-million pound rebranding exercise for Suffolk tourism were astonished when the county council rejected their Go Suffolk Yourself theme.
Officials deemed the phrase inappropriate and not in keeping with the county’s rich history, and instead selected the more austere Visit Suffolk phrasing.
FancyDan PR spokesman Greg Phillips said: “I don’t know what’s Suffolking problem with it, to be quite honest.
“It’s Suffolking great place to grow up and raise a family. It’s got the seaside, the countryside, markets to get your trinkets and doo dahs. I thought our logo summed that up perfectly.”
Project director Sally Hughes added: “I’ve lived here my whole life and wouldn’t change it for the world. There’s Norfolking way I’d want to leave.”
Hadleigh-based FancyDan PR was chosen to work on the £2,000,000 rebrand after success on a similar project in Yorkshire and the Humber, where their We Put The C*nt in Scunthorpe tourism campaign won several national awards.
