Good Looking Logo

QASA recently unveiled their new logo, designed for the Durban based association by Angela Bax. The new logo has been well received by QASA members who feel that it more realistically portrays the reality of people with mobility impairment and the beautiful country that we live in. They were especially impressed with the use of South African colours and the fact that the wheelchair user is leaning forward in the wheelchair. This, they said, portrayed an active member, someone with energy and life and moves away from old, outdated perceptions. This is not someone who sits back and waits for the world come to them or to help them, it is rather a person who looks forward to challenges. They feel that the new logo graphically represents QASA’s active involvement in promoting the interests of its members and their active participation in life.
