The purpose of this website is to celebrate excellence in all its forms in areas that have contributed to my wisdom's journey.
The inspiration behind the name Strategic Vision Investments originated in Texas during the 1980's during the course of my runs around Lake Grapevine. I had been very fortunate to have worked with some of the best and brightest leaders and was committed to maximizing the potential of not only my own journey but also to support others while continuing to raise the bar.
It took me several decades to consolidate my thoughts around how to maximize the potential of my initial inspiration. In 2016 my niece, Melanie Bruning, was visiting Australia after having finishing her degree in graphic design. I was inspired to collaborate with her to take things to the next level by creating this website and developing a brand logo that represented and embraced my passions in life. A dear friend and colleague, Miranda Van Groningen, Melanie and I sat down at a computer and decided to make it happen.
The creation of the logo was step one. We utilised the initials SVI to create the framework for the further development of the brand logo. We embraced the concepts of celebrating the past and that we all stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us while embracing the potential of the future. A potential that can only be realised through commitment, creativity and collaboration.
On my 50th birthday my children helped me celebrate with a "Forever Young" party and embraced a concept that I hold dear... "to stay forever young, always have your potential outweigh your experience." My hope is that my personal journey and brand identity embody this aspiration.
The logo is a combination of the letters "SVI" and the connectors that represent what our brand Strategic Vision Investments stands for. (1, 2 & 3)
Below, we have illustrated the independent components that fuse together to create the synergy behind our brand messages.The past enables the present (4) and the present empowers the future (5). The past and the future align in the present linking together inherent capability and our combined aspirations that maximize potential for future generations (6). The logo is completed by two connecting lines that illustrate the synergy that can be derived from the interconnectedness of all things (7 & 8).
This logo and website were designed by my wonderful niece Melanie Bruning. Please reference her work at www.melbruning.com
