POPAI History: Our Logo

POPAI on 02/08/2024

Key: Freedom

Torch: Enlightenment

Lines: Pathways to Freedom

“The key to freedom is understanding and understanding begins with enlightenment.”

The POPAI Board continues to value the tradition and meaning behind our logo. Recently we hired a graphic artist to help with our branding (colors, graphics, and fonts).

New elements will include these two styles in a few different ways and you’ll see our colors move toward blues with gold highlights:
