Some FAQ's about the new brand
Q: Why is PMI making a change to its brand?
A: Because it is so visual, you might think that our new logo, colors, typography and symbols are the “new brand.” But these images are only a visual representation of our new brand position, which is the core of PMI as we begin our next 50 years.
When the Project Management Institute was founded 50 years ago, project management wasn’t a thing yet—it was a small group of people talking about new tools, and processes that were changing the way work was being done. Our founders had the foresight to create an organization that would help people deliver results as their work changed. We’re carrying on that vision with our new brand.
We’re planting a flag in the future as ways of working continue to change. PM’s Value Delivery Landscape encompasses all of what we do today, all of the new offerings and knowledge we now have through our friends at Disciplined Agile and Flex, and is broad enough to keep us relevant through whatever is next – whether that’s citizen developer, low code/no code, quantum computing, or something completely new that will emerge as we continue to integrate technology into our ways of working.
Whatever that looks like, PMI powers The Project Economy, strengthening society by enabling organizations and empowering people to make ideas a reality.
The new logos, symbols and graphics are the visual representation of this new position, and PMI’s intent to be the leading voice in the future.
Q: How did PMI decide to move forward with this as our new brand?
A: As PMI enters its second half century, we are carrying on the vision of our founders when they created PMI to address new ways of working. Our Board of Directors asked for a brand refresh that would position PMI for its next decades of leadership as we strengthen society, enable organizations and empower individuals to turn ideas into reality. We gathered input and feedback from hundreds of stakeholders, including members, certified professionals, executives and volunteers, through surveys, focus groups, and online collaboration forums. We gathered insight from our research and combined these to land on the new brand personality, position and identity you see now.
Q: What are the new symbols and what do they mean?
A: There are 10 unique symbols that make up the language of The Project Economy – eight of them are available for use by everyone in the PMI brand ecosystem. Two are restricted.
These symbols create a consistent design language that represent some of the characteristics needed to be successful in the future. Over time, as we use them in our communications, these symbols will help shape and define The Project Economy, and demonstrate PMI’s authority and leadership in this space.
Collaboration: We can’t do it alone. Whether it’s partnering with a colleague, client, company or non-profit organization, each of us brings something unique to the table. And we are made stronger when we work together.
Determination: Sometimes projects go according to plan. Most of the time, not. Perseverance is needed to complete any project and successfully deliver outcomes that make a difference in the world.
*Change* (restricted to use only in the PMI logo mark): Disruption isn’t new—it’s constant. Learning how to navigate change is inherent to our growth and challenges us to continuously evolve. Greater challenges bring greater satisfaction in giving back.
Innovation: New ideas. New products. New methods. Constant transformation is what helps us tackle new problems and find fresh solutions. We know that the world isn’t one-size-fits-all. We bring new takes on everyday things to constantly move forward and make life better across the world.
eamwork: Projects are delivered by people, but winning projects are delivered by teams. Project delivery relies on team players and people who contribute added value to any project, making the team stronger.
Outcomes: We celebrate not just the process, but the positive impact that projects around the world make on society. We’re changing the world—for the better—one project at a time.
Growth: Change and transformation, while at times unfamiliar, spur progress. Whether it’s skill development or organizational expansion, growth brings new opportunities into our economy—and contributes to the greater good.
Vision: This can mean being unconventional. It can mean coming up with new ideas to solve new challenges. It’s about perspective, seeing the big picture, and the ability to create solutions for now that are sustainable for generations to come.
Community: The people that are part of our world make it what it is today. Our community is one of our most valuable assets. We celebrate it and keep it going by welcoming all who wish to join us to make the world a better place.
*Philanthropy* (restricted to use only by PMIEF): Making dreams a reality takes more than a vision — it takes action and dedication. We nurture and inspire the next generation to learn, grow, and achieve their goals so that they too can benefit society. This continued commitment and passion enables us to contribute to the welfare of our youth — and their communities.
The new brand guidelines identify several features of the new graphic identity:
- new logos for all parts of the PMI ecosystem.
- new colors that represent PMI’s brand personality – bold, fearless and nurturing. The colors are aqua, tangerine and violet
- New fonts and typefaces that reflect PMI’s brand and are proprietary to PMI (Agrandir and Pressura). These can be accessed centrally, with a default option to use Arial, which is widely available.
- new symbols that represent the language of The Project Economy.
Q: I see the colors have changed, what are the new colors?
A: The new colors represent PMI’s brand personality – bold, fearless and nurturing. The colors are aqua, tangerine and violet
Q: Why was the word chapter taken out of the logo – does this mean chapters are going away?
A: Not at all. Chapters are still essential elements of PMI’s stakeholder ecosystem, and each chapter has its own, unique, customized logo. The word “chapter” was removed from the logo simply for visual consistency in alignment with our new brand guidelines. Chapters will still be referred to as chapters in communications and messaging.
