A new logo to symbolize WINs Vision

WINs new logo is symbolic of the work we do. First, the color scheme: teal is the color for Sexual Assault Awareness, while purple is the color signifying Domestic Violence Awareness. The four-petal flower design also symbolizes the fact that one in four women will be a victim of violence in her lifetime, but the flower itself is emblematic of new growth and life. Our new logo design was graciously donated by Pete Musacchio of Agility Marketing in Erie, PA.
