Channel Islands Maritime Museum Debuts New Look for Logo

After thirty years, the original logo of the Channel Islands Maritime Museum (CIMM) has been retired, and a new logo has been created in its place.

The Museum celebrated a wonderfully successful 30th anniversary year in 2021, and it was decided that a new logo should be created as the Museum steps into its next 30 years. The new logo features bright colors with a tall ship silhouetted against the sun. Local artist and graphic designer Brett Bednorz created the new logo.

“The original logo served the Museum very well for the last thirty years. However, as we are at the start of our next thirty-year chapter, we decided that a new logo was called for,” said Channel Islands Maritime Museum Executive Director Adri Howe. “The Museum continues to evolve with a renewed and invigorated focus on quality exhibitions, education, and community. We wanted the new logo to reflect this. We love the energy and brightness that this new logo brings. We think it beautifully represents what the Museum is all about: the exploration of the maritime and marine worlds and the human creativity that continues to seek ways to interpret those worlds.”

Viewers of the Museum’s social media sites and website visitors will start to see the new logo immediately, with a full rollout by April 1, 2022.
