Local Chartered Accountancy firm launches new logo!
Bizworx Consultancy Limited, Chartered Accountants are pleased to announce the launch of their new logo.
Accountant and founder of the firm Lynne Wilkins says it was a team effort. It was time to update the Bizworx brand, which had initially been designed to use the same colours as the old official “Chartered Accountants” logo, which only firms who are suitably accredited to offer services to the public can use.
The process of coming up with a new design has been an opportunity for reflection on just what has been achieved since the practice first opened its doors in Bow Street, Raglan, at the back of the Westpac Bank building, in December 1999. Key dates include the change of the practice name to Bizworx (December 2004), and the move to their current location at 13 Wallis Street (December 2008). The firm provides local employment in a family-friendly environment, brings income into Raglan through specialist work that is carried out for clients who are based elsewhere, and supports a range of local community organisations.
Bizworx has managed to retain some of the old while going forward with the new, in that the abacus remains part of the logo design. Wilkins says this is in part an acknowledgement of the lengthy history that the accounting profession has enjoyed. In 1494, an Italian named Luca Pacioli (a friend of Leonardo da Vinci) wrote the earliest known book on double-entry accounting, and the principles outlined all those years ago remain the foundation for the accounting programmes we use on the computer and “in the cloud” today.
