Vector Group Charitable Trust (Envisioning Sustainable Communities Creatively):

What it signifies

Our Branding

A vector is an angle starting from one point and reaching outwards indefinitely. Like vision, a vector begins at one point and moves beyond the peripheral. A vector is not stagnant but signifies motion.

A quantity having direction as well as magnitude, especially as determining the position of one point in space relative to another.

Various logo designs were put forward, Steve the founder of Vector Group designed a futuristic logo.

It has a modern feel and was decided upon by Te Puke youth. It contains sharp angled letters V and G that resemble vectors which is enclosed by a hexagonal circle of community.

Meaning of 6; (as a numerological aspect of the hexagon) include: Communication, Interfacing, Balance, Sincerity, Truth,  Harmony, Equality, Perfection, Integration, Conjoining, Reliability, Dependability.

The hexagon is one of the geometric shapes that occurs in nature.
