A Note from Executive Director, Zak Bloom

Welcome to the new MEUW website!

The 2014/2015 MEUW business plan initiatives include developing a new branding strategy that incorporates a new logo and consistent look across all marketing and communications. We are proud to announce the launch of the new MEUW website as part of the ongoing evolution of our association’s brand. By giving our existing brand an entirely new look and feel, we are bringing our reorganization full circle and achieving our business plan initiatives.

For starters, MEUW has revamped its logo. The new logo exudes a clean, simple, contemporary feel that enhances the brand and makes it more relatable. The association wanted to keep some familiarity, so the new logo is aligned with the old identity in that it incorporates the blue from the previous brand. A custom typeface was created to simplify the characters so that they will look consistent and stay legible when used in any marketing vehicle. The abstract design of an “electrical plug” defines who MEUW serves and is as an association, it also encompasses the letters “E” and “U” for electric utilities. As the logo gains more exposure, this element was created so that it is strong enough to stand on its own as an icon for the brand. The new logo is a stronger, more iconic representation of the association.

Our business has grown and evolved over the past couple of years, and we felt it was time for a change. We have refreshed our identity to reflect who we are today and to symbolize the vision we have for the future. We appreciate your cooperation as we press forward with the rebrand and the new website, and we invite you to provide us with your feedback.
