The Story Behind The Brand.

When Accelerate Partners decided it was time for a rebrand, we understood a great deal more about who we are today than we did in 2014, and we wanted our brand to reflect that.

We strived to create a brand that integrated the A in Accelerate and subtly conveyed motion while retaining its individuality. It was essential that we demonstrate our strengths in tenacity, collaboration, commitment and efficiency, while also demonstrating the breadth of our experience.

The end result is a logo that appears agile, has motion and dimension, and subtly resembles the head of a wolf. It accurately reflects who we are and what we aim for. We are your partner, and we will work diligently and expeditiously until we meet and surpass your expectations.
