Dear Ontario Taekwondo Community,

 

We are pleased to unveil the new  Taekwondo Ontario logo to the greater membership. This logo will be used going forward September 1, 2017.

 

The logo is modern and reflects the Executive’s desire to modernize the association to be the leading Taekwondo PSO in Canada. As this logo is the property of Taekwondo Ontario, it cannot be used without the expressed written permission of the association. Strict branding guidelines have also been established to protect the integrity of the logo and the brand of Taekwondo Ontario.

 

 

Enjoy!

As part of the re-branding effort, we have developed a new logo and will be updating all our media and print materials as well as our website to reflect our new identity and name. Guidelines has also been developed to ensure that their is consistency in the use and application of the new logo. The new logo will be unveiled in the coming days.

Our website will be updated to be mobile and tablet device friendly as well as reflect our new branding and logo.
