A logo story

Our logo is designed to reflect how a shift in perspective can uncube you.


At first glance, our logo might appear like a regular cube, albeit with a few spaces. But then when you look more carefully--it becomes simply two walls, a door and a floor.

Space to grow, space to change.

Which is really what Unqbe is all about. Building future-ready organisations that are free to become what they aspire to be, even when, or perhaps specially when everything around them is changing.

The design was inspired by the great Escher, an inspiration for one of us.

And that beautiful fresh green, that represents new beginnings is a shade called 'Anne of Green Gables', a childhood favourite for the other.
