The history of our logo
The first logotype of Technical Networks Brno, plc was created in 1998, when the actual public limited company, whose sole owner is the Statutory City of Brno, was established. Throughout its many years of existence, the company has undergone many internal and external changes and it has gradually developed into the current modern and open institution.
Company logo rebranding
A change of the company logo was a consequence and an external manifestation of numerous internal changes that took place within the company and it was only logical, since the logo reflects values that the company upholds. The actual change of the logo reacts to changes of marketing and communication strategies both inside and outside of the company and thus sends an important signal how the company wishes to be perceived by others.
Technical Networks Brno, plc is constantly changing and evolving, just as any other living entity. This development has been very dynamic in the last three years, yet the company does not forget to respect the mission for which it was created by the Statutory City of Brno many years ago. The company is changing into a modern, open and dynamic institution which draws its strength and stability from experience it has gained throughout its existence. The new logo therefore expresses certain dynamism, a shift within the company, but also values that the company as a whole wishes to uphold.
Designing the company logo
When designing the logo we made sure that it is unique, distinct, simple and thus easy to remember. The symbol “T” can be seen not only as a letter but also as a figure – a figure that is firm, stable and trustworthy and at the same time closely surrounded by other signs. These signs represent values which the employees as a whole want to uphold through their behavior and work: communication, efficiency, development, cooperation and quality. The new logo thus becomes a simple and apt symbol which can serve as a visual shortcut and it can also become an important motivation factor (a subliminal reminder of the values the company’s employees uphold). The new logo of Technical Networks Brno, plc also well demonstrates the relation of our company to the Statutory City of Brno which is its owner and establisher.
