"All things are connected.Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of earth.

Man didn't weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it.

Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

This we know, all things are connected like the blood which unites one family."

Actualise Logo

This description was written by my graphic designer. "The Actualise logo represents the upward movement and change that Actualise is able to facilitate. The outside arrow throws a shadow which is indicative of the added dimension that Actualise can provide to individuals or groups in providing upward change". Personally, I like the colours….

Actualise - Defined

I chose the name Actualise because I loved the definition; 1. to make actual or real. 2. to represent realisitically. Both aspects of this definition are appropriate to the business. We are about about making a difference (to make actual) and we absolutely value our integrity (to represent realistically).

The Spider Web

The spider web was chosen as a graphic after reading the work of Margaret Wheatley. It represents the myriad of connections we have with each other. There is a randomness and a basic pattern in spider webs. They are strong and flexible. They are easily broken and easily repaired. They can be widespread or very small.
