Jamaica launches its new tourism slogan Get All Right. Photograph: Tourism Jamaica
Earlier this month the Jamaican tourist board unveiled a new brand identity, ditching its previous slogan, “Jamaica – Once you go, you know”, and replacing it with the far more succinct, albeit grammatically obtuse, “Jamaica – Get All Right”. The new slogan is currently being launched around the world; last week the touirst board rolled the world’s largest stress ball into New York’s Times Square and on Tuesday a twitter campaign ran to the tune of #getallright.
The Korean tourist board is also planning to replace its current slogan, but – in a move possibly designed to avoid having to take too much responsibility should it fail – it ran a public competition for ideas. Those who entered were hopefully inspired by Korea’s current slogan: “Be Inspired”. The competition has now closed but the new tagline will be unveiled in February 2014. In the meantime, here’s a round-up of some past and present travel slogans you may find emblazoned on posters, websites and brochures around the world.
