Special D Events welcomes Tim Walker, CMP as the new Senior Meeting and Events Manager.
The leaves are falling, the season is changing, and so is Special D Events! We are pleased to reveal the rebranding of Special D Events through our new logo and website. We are excited about our fresh new look, and hope you enjoy the updated free resources on our website. We value your input, so comments and feedback are most welcome. Here’s a little more information about our fresh, new look.
Why this logo?
• It’s a stylistic representation of 4 “D” shaped chairs and is meant to convey meetings / gatherings / collaboration.
• It represents our 4 core lines of business (meetings, special events, trade shows and corporate anniversaries).
Why these colors?
• The green and blue bridge the gap from our old to new logo.
• Orange and gray were added because they are current/contemporary.
• The orange also reflects an element of fun and creativity.
• The green also supports Special D Event’s people/profit/planet mission and desired reputation for environmentally-friendly events.
