Introducing NOPNA's updated logo!

Along with the new NOPNA website we are introducing a refreshed version of our logo. It is not a completely new logo, but an update. This new version keeps the same overall concept of our original logo (geometric letters representing city blocks, underlined by a green bar depicting the Panhandle Park… with human figures representing our community). However we have worked on a few noticeable changes, to help the logo stand out, be easily readable in different applications, and represent our association in a more confident way.

The refreshed NOPNA logo

The refreshed NOPNA logo

Here are some of the changes:

  • The yellow color is now slightly darker, giving the logo a better contrast against white backgrounds.
  • The green color is a little lighter, helping the illustrations stand out from the green background.
  • The shapes on the “NOPNA” letters are now simplified, helping to make them a little easier to read. Also, they were designed to look sharp (pixel-perfect) on our website header.
  • The word “NOPNA” now stands out more than the full spelled out name of the organization, making the short name more memorable.
  • The illustrations of the human figures were updated.
  • Also, notice that even though each of those individuals is in a different activity, telling their own story, all characters seem to be walking towards the center of the scene. In a subjective way, that shows a feeling of engagement, togetherness and community building.
