Grain Processing Corporation, a leading manufacturer and worldwide marketer of corn-based products, announced the launch today of a new corporate logo. The new GPC logo was unveiled on the companyâs newly updated and relaunched Web site â www.grainprocessing.com.
While reflective of the companyâs past, both the new logo and refreshed Web site are firmly focused on the future with their vibrant and contemporary looks. âWe wanted to retain the look of GPCâbecause weâre very proud of our historyâyet we also wanted our image to capture the innovative and progressive culture inherent in our company,â says Doyle Tubandt, president, Grain Processing Corporation. âWeâve grown and changed over the years as a company and it was time for our logo to change, as well.â
Familiar, yet new
The new GPC logo is an evolution of the previous one. It still retains its triangular shape, but now it reaches outward, signifying the global nature of the companyâs business. The three sections of the logo build upon one another with the earth-tone colors reflecting the renewable resources as well as the natural essence that underscore GPCâs ingredients. A customized font adds to the fluidity of the logo and ties it all together.
âAnyone familiar with our current logo will instantly recognize the new logo as GPC,â explains Tubandt. âItâs familiar, yet more modern and vibrant. This new look better embodies who we are as a company and exemplifies the optimistic view we have of both our near-term and long-term future.â
Launched simultaneously, GPCâs updated Web site has a significantly more dynamic and vibrant look. âWe designed our new site from the user viewpoint,â explains John Thorpe, vice president of sales. âThis will make for a much smoother user experience and streamlined way to find solutions for every day product development challenges.â Taking its design from visual cues in the new logo, users will find better navigation tools as well as more information-rich segments on product and market information.
âLetâs face it,â Thorpe said, âthe pace at which everyone in the product development cycle is needing innovative ideas, technical development assistance and market intelligence, continues to increase. And while weâve built a global infrastructure to help assist in shortening the timeline between ideation and âgo-to-market,â we also wanted to provide a similar online support mechanism that could be used 24/7. Our new Web site does that in a way that I think everyone who uses it will appreciate. There is a significant amount of useful new content, but the site remains easy to navigate.â
