PowerQ Introduces Their New Logo

Further to the acquisition of PowerQ the company is adopting a newly designed logo that reflects its relation with its parent company Netcontrol. The new design uses the same warm-yellow icon as the parent company’s logo. This stylised “N” represents electricity, the key focus of both companies. The text or wordmark part, too, is black or white in its entirety as in the Netcontrol logo. The typeface outlines, on the other hand, derive from PowerQ’s old logo, but have been modified to harmonise with Netcontrol’s italics and the lozenge-shaped icon. The tagline spells out the association with Netcontrol.

With its forward-leaning new logo, PowerQ and Netcontrol are ready to face new challenges together. Next the two companies are meeting their mutual clientele at Netcontrol User Meeting in Tampere.
