The Spahr Center, the LGBTQ+ community center serving Marin County, California, has a new look with a brand new logo. The new design features a rainbow Mt. Tamalpais with silhouettes of redwood trees in front. Notably, the rainbow Mt. Tam includes black and brown stripes signifying The Spahr Center’s commitment to racial justice.
The logo was designed, pro-bono, by East Bay designer Jennifer Bellingham of Black Lamb Media. Jennifer said, “It was our pleasure to support The Spahr Center with the branding and design of their new logo, which provides the agency with a bright, modern symbol representative of the direction they are moving toward. As an LGBTQ+-owned business, we are honored to lend a hand to an organization that supports and unites our community.”
Adrian Shanker, executive director of The Spahr Center, shared, “The Spahr Center has a storied 40-year history providing programs and services for Marin’s LGBTQ+ and HIV communities. We have an exciting vision for the future. We imagine vibrant and thriving LGBTQ+ and HIV communities in Marin, supported and celebrated by our robust variety of programs and services. This logo not only better reflects who we are today but also our aspirations for who we plan to be in the future.”
Denny David, board chair of The Spahr Center, added “The Spahr Center is a Marin agency as its core. We were here for Marin through the early days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and have been here ever since. This new logo is unique to Marin, and is more representative of the community we serve today, and in the future.”
The Spahr Center celebrates and supports the LGBTQ+ and HIV communities in Marin County, California through direct services, health promotion and harm reduction, and community building programs.
