The idea for a new Logo originated as part of the new PSSA Council’s strategic vision and led by Prof. Faadiel Essop and Dr. Ben Loos who are currently the President and Treasurer, respectively, of the PSSA. The objective was to develop a fresh logo to match the new PSSA website. Prof. Kathy Myburgh was elected as the Leader of the Logo Team at the PSSA AGM of 2014, and played a key role to drive this process. After a long period of design and re-design, followed by multiple rounds of voting, the new logo for the PSSA is proudly presented to our members.
Prof. Essop thanked the Logo Team and its leader, Prof. Kathy Myburgh, for their excellent efforts in this regard. He also expressed his gratitude to all those who voted and also to Natalie from NetMechanics for her patience and tremendous efforts to help design the final logo. The June 2015 PSSA newsletter will include a full article by Prof. Myburgh that will detail the entire process – from design to acceptance of the final PSSA logo.
