During the recent drought of new posts to SURFBANG.com (my apologizes to all our fans!), the Surfrider Foundation has gone and changed their logo. This is big news because Surfrider is the leading organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches and people should recognize their logo worldwide. At first, I wasn’t to fond of the new design but it has grown on me and I dig it now and so should you!
If you’re not already, you should go become a member of the Surfrider foundation. You’re not a true surfer unless you are a member! Go to surfrider.org to join or renew your membership.
World Leader in Beach and Coastal Protection Moves Towards the Future
With their 25th anniversary now behind them, the Surfrider Foundation took a bold step towards the future this week when it unveiled a new logo.
“The Surfrider Foundation has come a long way since our early days in Malibu,” says Chief Executive Officer Jim Moriarty. “We felt it was time to update our mark to be more reflective of the energy and enthusiasm we are seeing as our world-wide network of grassroots chapters and volunteer activists continues to grow.”
The Surfrider Foundation worked with acclaimed creative agency 72 and Sunny to create the new identity.
“We wanted to build from Surfrider’s heritage and infuse it with the idea of growth through activism. Both the wordmark and icon swell, becoming bolder over time,” said John Boiler, co-founder, 72andSunny.
Surfrider Foundation’s new logo maintains many familiar elements from the original mark, including the organization’s famous stripped wave, albeit in a more streamlined and contemporary design.
“Our new logo is as much about embracing our past is it is about welcoming the future,” says Moriarty.
