ABOUT OUR LOGO

Our logo represents the purpose of the organisation and the interaction of the three main stakeholders working together towards a common goal. Woven within the identity is a mature pine tree expressed as the green section representing Pan Pac, the blue being Hawke Bay and the Trust, with the gold signifying Community, sky and future; with the negative space being the project. The identity is then extended to a full kowhaiwhai pattern that visually tells the story of the growth of the region through the success of the funded projects.
