ITKAN, The IT Knowledge and Abilities Network, Announces New Brand Logo and Messaging

ITKAN Chicago has a new look. The updated logo depicts the nonprofit’s commitment to branching out, creating training-to-hire initiatives for its members with disabilities and a passion for technology. The brand’s icon, a multi-hued green and blue tree whose branches evoke pulsing energy and whose wide roots are exposed to indicate a solid foundation, will represent the ITKAN brand on its social media sites as well as all ITKAN-sponsored initiatives. Its tag line, Exploring technology without limits, is reflective of the professional development group’s mission to support the growth of all members, regardless of challenge.

“We are very excited to share ITKAN’s new logo and messaging as we begin our strategic efforts to develop training initiatives and reach out more broadly to the hiring community through our Advisory Team. The new brand icon reflects our group’s growth in both strategy and reach. Finally, the messaging – Exploring Technology without Limits – is part of our DNA, we do it month after month, year after year.”
