OUR LOGO AND MANTRA
COMCO Southeast Asia unveils its icon – a mothership housing the company’s great works and individuals with immense talent, meaning, passion and dreams, and taking off to bring us anywhere, create experiences and conquer new horizons. As each of us explores the world and fulfills our respective missions, we always return, recharge and reunite in our mothership where we all belong. That mothership is a vessel, a second home, a safe zone, a creativity playground, and a jumping board that empowers the COMCO Squadron to do more groundbreaking projects and make a difference along the way.
COMCO’s logo transforms from speech bubble into a digital screen, which beams the image of the mothership, and reflects the more modern, more complete and more integrated way of communicating in a world that has evolved. It shows the advancement, the digital and multi-touchpoint integration, and the completeness of the emerging global disciplines it champions – New PR and Smart Social.
