OFVC Unveils a New Look
As the convention continues to move forward and grow, the timing is right to evolve our visual identity to bring it into sync with who we are and where we are headed. Our new logo emphasizes the acronym ‘ofvc’ utilizing a clean, progressive and modern look. It focuses on the main element of our convention, fruit and vegetables (represented by the joined letters f and v) with leaves above representing growth and the coming together of agriculture and business. The new colour scheme incorporates teal blue associated with meanings of stability and trusting as well as a new green colour associated to growth and freshness. Watch for the new logo as it rolls out in the coming months!
