Maine’s service commission adopts Volunteer Maine as new identity, unveils new logo and tagline
October 21st, 2019
AUGUSTA -- Maine's service commission has adopted a new identity to better communicate the organizations mission and capabilities.
The Maine Commission for Community Service will now be known as Volunteer Maine. A new logo and branded elements were created in collaboration with Pulse Marketing Agency of Bangor. Additionally, Volunteer Maine Commissioners chose "A Stronger Maine Through Volunteerism" as the new tagline for the state service commission.
The new identity unifies the state service commission and its volunteer resource center, also named Volunteer Maine. The recourse center was established in 2002 by the state service commission as a means of creating a "one-stop" service for both citizens who want to volunteer and community groups seeking to address local problems through volunteer-powered solutions.
The goal of the new logo is to visually establish the connection between the state service commission and the various National Service programs established by the Corporation for National and Community Service. Print and web-friendly copies of the new Volunteer Maine logo will be made available online in the coming weeks.
Volunteer Maine is in the process of making the necessary updates, such as updates to digital platforms and physical signage, to reflect its new identity, and has set a one-year timeline for full adoption.
