We uphold the principles of inclusive tolerance but will exclude sexist, racist or other demeaning discussion on this website.
Our web designers, Rowdy Inc, extended the concept of a traditional Pacific Island conch shell to one that resembles curved pages, centring research at the heart of Toksave’s knowledgeable discussion. In their words, “The page forms deriving from the conch shell emphasise the focus of the discussion on the Pacific, and its flow gives the feeling of movement and also water, relating back to Pacific islands. The three bubbles are a small detail but indicate that something is living and will therefore evolve and change as the Toksave community will. We used Pacific inspired colours, the blues for sky and ocean and warm brown for sand and earth.”
In choosing this design, our inaugural Reference Group also considered that the logo took a particularly feminine form, with the shell’s curves representing those of women, calling their communities to attend the safe space of Toksave.
