Nuvative: behind the mark

It was important that the Nuvative mark embodied our idea of a limitless future. We were inspired by a J-curve pattern and combining warm and cool tones to represent both stability and enthusiasm. What we created is a visual reminder that when exploring minds come together inspired by a common purpose, the opportunity is limitless.

Evolution of Nuvative logomark

A J-curve is a graphical representation of an exponential growth pattern occurring in an ideal, unlimited environment. One of the main characteristics of a J-curve is the “dip” or negative growth at the beginning which can be perceived as negative but is required to set the stage for explosive results. At Nuvative we understand that in order to reap rewards, hard work and difficulties must be overcome. The movement of our efforts never end, but we are always striving to be better each day.
