Markitforce’s new branding which was unveiled in November 2009 has been recognised as a finalist in an annual book released by the leading global graphic design organisation, LogoLounge.

Markitforce would like to formally recognise the exceptional work produced by our agency Trade Advertising and Graphic Design Consultant Joseph McGlennon. In an announcement today from LogoLounge we were advised that “The judging for LogoLounge Volume 6, has been completed. We are excited with the exceptional quality level of work selected for this sixth volume. This was an incredibly competitive judging session with over 34,000 logos entered for consideration. We are also very pleased to inform you that your work has been chosen for inclusion in the new book by an international panel of judges.”

Markitforce launches new brand, logo design & some exciting announcements!

Over recent months we have been working hard to reshape our brand so that it is more reflective of who we are. The result is this vibrant, fun and recognisable brand which reflects our strong market position, the passion and accountability shown by our people, and mirrors the values that are most important to our partners.

Today’s brand announcement coincides with the recent expansion of Markitforce’s service offering to include a bonded warehouse facility, TGA approved pharmaceutical packing facilities and the purchase of a range of new heat shrink tunnels enabling Markitforce to produce product with a retail quality finish.

I would also like to announce the appointment of two new General Managers for Markitforce Sydney. We have appointed Sarah Fletcher as Chief of Staff – Finance and Operations, and Kasey Lee Cavey as Chief of Staff – Client Services and Marketing. Sarah, Kasey and the rest of our management team have contributed significantly to the success of Markitforce in recent years and this strategic move will provide the business with a fantastic platform for growth in the coming years.
