GA Voice: MAAP unveils new logo for wide network of LGBT professionals
The Metro Atlanta Association of Professionals is rebranding their image and they’re starting with a new logo design.
MAAP officially launched the logo and redesign on September 17 during a monthly Third Thursday Networking event with full support from its members and community partners.
The new design is a graphical map pointer that boasts the highly recognizable rainbow colors of the LGBT pride flag. Rhys Black, a member of MAAP is responsible for the final version of the logo.
“We are fortunate to have individuals such as Rhys as a member and cannot thank her enough for her help,” said Joshua D. Lorenz, President and CEO of MAAP in a statement.
Tony Barnett, Marketing Director of MAAP shares Lorenz’s enthusiasm about the new design and direction of the company. “I’m excited to have been a part of this effort that will showcase a new look and feel for our brand to our community. MAAP is a destination for our community to come together and network, and what better way to represent that destination than a graphical map pointer to lead the way both figuratively and literally,” says Bennet.
MAAP’s mission is individual and professional development through networking, relationship-building and education for Atlanta’s LGBT professionals and our allies. The organization currently has a network of more than 2,000 professionals.
