Announcing the Octane Brand Refresh

January 6th, 2020, Aliso Viejo, CA.  Octane, Southern California’s leading accelerator announced today that they have refreshed their brand and updated their logo to coincide with the addition of Octane Enterprise Solutions (OES) and new conference, Aesthetics Technology Summit (ATS) to better reflect the mission and future of the organization. 

Octane’s new logo is composed of two overlapping orange circles that evoke the growth of the organization and the companies that have utilized Octane’s LaunchPad Accelerator and OES platforms. The new logo also reflects the idea of circular networks overlapping and expanding to create a stronger business ecosystem for Southern California. As Octane continues to be a resource and touchpoint for all companies from startups to established enterprise companies, the updated logo is friendly, open, and approachable.Octane Rebrand Mockups-06

The refreshed visual brand and logo represents an evolution for Octane and also maintains the powerful legacy of the brand, utilizing its most recognizable aspect, Octane Orange. For Octane, orange represents both an action-oriented stance on their mission, but also a nod toward epicenter of the organization, Orange County, California.
