Kompass Credit and Financing Corporation adopts Corporate Logo

Certain parameters were considered in the design of the corporate logo. The logo must be simple, legible, memorable, timeless, versatile and appropriate.

The logo has a modified compass instead of the normal letter ‘O’, made use of blue, red and gold colors. The logo gives prominence on the letter “K”, the first letter of the Company name. The emphasis was made by making it capitalized and larger than the other letters.

Secondly, a symbolism of the modern compass, a navigational instrument, replaces the letter “O”. Instead of the usual ‘N’(orth), ‘S’(outh), ‘E’(ast), ‘W’(est) markers, the four initial letters of the cardinal principles of the Knights of Columbus Order, ‘C’(harity), ‘U’(nity), ‘F’(raternity) and ‘P’(atriotism) were used. Although the “O” is not a perfect circle, actually an ellipse, as it is tilted to the right, the circle promotes unity, completeness and infinity.

Moreover, the compass serves as a directional tool. KCFC aims to safely guide clients towards the North direction, the road to financial success or freedom. The sharp edges in the design signify pinpoint accuracy or precision and also represent the delicate and careful analyses performed before making any decision.

The colors of the Knights of Columbus emblem/logo are also vividly represented: yellow (yellowish gold), red and blue. Yellow symbolizes wisdom, joy and intellectual energy. Red demonstrates energy, passion and action. Blue, on the other hand, represents youth, spirituality, truth and peace. White indicates purity and cleanliness. Finally, gold indicates wealth, wisdom and prosperity. Basically, the colors indirectly guide KCFC to follow the traits espoused by the K of C order that passionately promotes non-discrimination, unselfishness, and above board dealings in all its transactions, the basic ingredients to financial success and prosperity.
