The Centre becomes the “Australian Pro Bono Centre”
On 17 June 2015 the National Pro Bono Resource Centre officially changed its name to the Australian Pro Bono Centre. The Centre’s new name and visual identity were launched by the Centre’s Chair, Phillip Cornwell, at the Welcome Drinks to the 2015 National Access to Justice and Pro Bono Conference.
Our new name
The role of the Centre in an international context continues to grow, particularly as law firms themselves are increasingly operating in an international context. The Centre’s resources and publications are now being used in other jurisdictions and the Centre’s input is consistently sought in international forums. As a result of this expanding international role it was decided that the Centre should change its name to the Australian Pro Bono Centre to make its identity more ‘outward looking’ and accessible from an international perspective.
Our new visual identity
In addition to changing its name the Centre also adopted an exciting new visual identity to communicate its focus on increased accessibility. The Centre’s new visual identity was very generously developed by Paul Garbett and his team at Garbett Design on a pro bono basis.
Garbett created an elegant design, incorporating the “pillars of justice” (in black) and “equality” (in orange), both of which underpin the uniting features of the Centre’s diverse work – access to justice and furthering social justice.
In addition to the Centre’s own logo, Garbett also created the suite of project logos used throughout our new website.
Thank you to Paul and the Garbett team for their hard work, skill, creative insights and the incredible result they have achieved.
