For quite some time we have been thinking about replacing our Red-billed Curassow logo, with a new logo that is more general and better shows what REGUA is all about. Our original logo showed the very distinctive skyline of the Serra dos Órgãos mountains at REGUA. The Red-billed Curassow logo, created by Andre Lindner, Katharina Stein and Corinna Burkart, came into use in early 2007, just a few months after the first Red-billed Curassows were reintroduced on the reserve.
Although the curassow logo was chosen as our main logo and used on our website and publications, we continued to use the mountains logo for some applications such as on our newsletter. There was, however, a fundamental problem with both logos – they were such a low resolution that they were unsuitable for printing in large scale.
What we needed was a new logo. So over the last few months we’ve been working on redesigned versions of both logos, and eventually settled on a new mountains logo. We’d like to give a special thank you to Jenny Price for all her hard work producing the logos, and also express our thanks to REGUA volunteers Rachel Walls and Lee Dingain, Kevin cox from the World Land Trust and Alan Martin of the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest Trust.
Jenny has just launched her new business, Dandylion Jack. She produces distinctive, eco-friendly greetings cards with designs inspired by nature. The cards and envelopes are made from 100% recycled or FSC certified materials, and are wrapped in a clear bag made from 100% biodegradable cornstarch. They are designed, printed and packed in the UK. The RSPB have recently taken stock of six of Jenny’s bird designs – the House Sparrow, Blue Tit, Redwing, Puffin, Oystercatcher and Gannet designs. These will be sold in the RSPB shops located at many of their reserves in the UK.
