Office Connection News

We have a fresh new logo!

Posted on April 27, 2016

Office Connection was established in 1982 by Barry Rawlinson and Stephen Best. They have proudly served Peterborough and the surrounding area for 34 years as a team. In March of this year, Barry decided it was time for retirement and handed over the business to Stephen. With big changes come, well, more big changes. I, Melissa Best (yes, there is a relationship there) was promoted to the manager of the sales department and tasked with a project I have been long waiting to do...modernize our company logo. Despite being a very solid and well recognized symbol for our company, we are a business driven by constantly changing technology. In order to stay current, our logo needed to feel like it connected too. After much deliberation and several different styles, I am proud to show off the final result. A huge thank you to Lisa @ Richard's Printing in Port Hope for designing our new logo and for being so patient with me while I made up my mind.
