Established in 1979, IPATA International is a network of professional pet shippers providing pet transportation services to relocating families. Our network ships any type of animal that can be considered a family pet - from gerbils to fish to iguanas and, yes, even miniature horses and cows as well as the usual dogs and cats. Animals are shipped by air and road locally, nationwide and worldwide. We have members in 70 countries and can virtually ship pets anyplace in the world.
IPATA is currently re-branding itself and this fall will be launching its new name, The International Pet and Animal Transportation Association, as well as a redesigned website at http://www.ipata.com. We would like to update our logo to reflect a more modern, professional organization.
** An international audience of animal handlers, pet moving providers, kennel operators, veterinarians and others who are dedicated to the care and welfare of pets and small animals during transport.
** Pet owners and the general public who need to ship their 4-legged family members as part of an employment relocation and others who know very little about pet shipping
Our current logo (attached) is too busy but gives you an idea of what we've had in the past.
We need a logo that is clean, fresh, is easy to reproduce on t-shirts/materials, and to some degree, illustrates what we do - shipping family pets internationally by air.
We want the logo to be simple with no cartoon imagery of animals. It does not necessarily need to be four color, perhaps 2 or 3, but we are open to suggestions.
The use of the "paw print" is often overused and should be limited to only very unique usage in a design. While we are international, the globe has been used for so long in our old logo that we would like to see a change; something totally new.
Logo should include the word: “IPATA”
Our tagline is “the pet shipping experts” though that does not have to be included.
