Our logo is our unique mark. It is the visual signature by which we are known and ensures that our brand is always recognised, and that what we stand for is communicated.

Our logo is composed of two elements: The symbol, and the wordmark. None of which can be used in isolation, as each is a vital part of representing who we are. The symbol represents air bubbles emerging from the depths of the ocean in keeping with our heritage while the wordmark is the name of our company.

Logo Variations
