Community branding may be too important to leave up to college students
See "Local college students submit banner designs for District Heights streetscape project: Residents will pick favorite image at March 20 meeting" from the Gazette.
While I like one design more than the other, I can't claim either is great.
Banner designs often become more about community building than strong branding and identity development for communities and commercial districts.

Five Prince George's Community College students designed proposed banners for the city of District Heights' Downtown Street Banners Community Visioning Project. The project is a partnership between the city and PGCC Visual Communication students to create a banner to hang from lamp posts on Marlboro Pike. Residents will have a chance March 20 to select their favorite designs from at the E. Michael Roll Municipal Building in District Heights.
