History of Our Logo

Carolyn Boccella Bagin, President of the Center for Clear Communication, designed our corporate symbol with the Rising Sun Chair of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in mind. George Washington, while seated in that chair, presided over the meetings that created our country’s foundation, the U.S. Constitution.

Ben Franklin, contemplating the gilded half sun “looked behind the President without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting: But now I have the happiness to know that it is a rising sun,” a declaration of hope for the future of our country.
