POINT BLUE CONSERVATION SCIENCE
Identity & Collateral Design
'Confluence' is the concept for this logo. The image represents movement: a bird in flight or a sprouting seed. The three forms show interrelationship of air, water, and land. They are derived mathematically from Venn diagrams—intersecting sets of circles—which speaks directly to Point Blue's desire and ability to work together in partnership to develop solutions in science that benefit people and nature.

Visually, the logo builds upon the company name, and specifically upon ‘builders’ in the company name—just as any business is built on its reputation or ‘name.’
