Aker Kvaerner has a new name
Aker Kvaerner ASA (AKVER) has changed its name to Aker Solutions ASA. The company will from Tuesday 08.04.2008 be quoted on Oslo Børs with new name, Aker Solutions ASA and ticker AKSO.
There's extensive wordage about the name change here. And about the logo which, we learn "communicates clarity. Logical and structured, it embodies depth and suggests focus. Its precise form maintains a tie to Aker Kvaerner's industrial heritage while invoking movement and suggesting new directions for the future."
What's more "It is also about innovation and drive. The bold 'Aker' in the wordmark builds a stable foundation, creating the freedom for innovation that delivers 'Solutions' in a lighter typeface, exemplifying new thinking, energy and agility. The petroleum blue and steely grey evoke a professional attitude, while the bright orange accents a fresh, dynamic palette. "
After all that, we'd better show it you:
