One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - refresh™
B[ning] was one of the few designers who really followed our brief and represented the human team at the centre of the balloon team idea. After presenting several variations on their original design we selected B[ning] as the winner for the simple but effective logo with colour matching text reinforcing the two symbols of balloon and team. As our business develops I am confident we will work with B[ning] again to obtain variations of this central logo.

How afrilabs started their logo design journey

Company name

AfriLabs

Overview

We are a consortium of African technology hubs with open work spaces in Kenya, Uganda, Cameroon and Senegal. Individually, each hub serves as a nexus for technologists, investors, tech companies and hackers in our community. Together, we form a gestalt entity of connected nodes in a collaborative, Pan-African network.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Our audience is African, global and far-reaching; this includes anyone who is participating in or promoting the growth of the African tech space. One segment of our audience is young African entrepreneurs, web and mobile phone programmers, designers, researchers and the startups that spring from these places. Each tech hub has its own distinct identity, yet shares a common vision of promoting the African technology sector.

Another segment of our audience is investors, VCs, private equity funds, businesses and organizations looking to engage this rising tide of African technopreneurs.

Participating hubs in the AfriLabs network include:
iHub Nairobi (Kenya) - http://ihub.co.ke
NaiLab (Kenya) - http://nailab.co.ke
Hive Colab (Uganda) - http://hivecolab.com
ActivSpaces (Cameroon) - http://activspaces.com
Banta Labs (Senegal) - http://bantalabs.com
