Do you know the meaning behind the Spurwink logo? At Spurwink we put a lot of thought into everything we do and that includes designing our logo!
- The circle of the logo includes eight “shapes”; these eight shapes are a reference to the eight boys who lived in the very first Spurwink group home, when we opened in Portland in 1960. We think our history is important and we are grateful for the forward thinking people who started Spurwink.
- The white lines in the circle look something like a tree. This is a reference to our great State of Maine, the Pine Tree State. Spurwink is a Maine-based non-profit behavioral health organization, made up of Maine people serving Maine people. We are proud to be an important part of Maine and celebrate it.
- The tree shape also looks like an upward moving arrow; this symbolizes our commitment to progress, improvement, and “always doing better”.
- The Spurwink logo has shades of green because green is the color of growth, renewal and new life. These are the goals of Spurwink and our work.
- The logo is in a circle. The circle symbolizes “unity” and “wholeness”. At Spurwink we believe that we are stronger together, united with each other, the people we serve, families, and our communities.
