Synopsis of Logo




Visual Identity For The Singapore Port Workers Union

The modern new logo and typography created for SPWU together comprise a union identity for the 21st century. An identity which is particularly appropriate for Singapore's first union, a union which has been and continues to be at the forefront of the nation's drive for excellence.

The Unity logo, which won an award (Click here to view the award), comprises of three elements:

The Circle Around The Globe

The brush stroke circle represents the strength, stability and the harmonious relationship between SPWU and its employer-partners. It is also representative of the extensive connections and influence of the SPWU and its members.


Contained within the circle is the world, depicted in an abstract, watercolour style and evocative of photographs of earth taken from space.

The globe element, centred around Singapore, represents the world class quality and organisation of the SPWU members, the individuals who work in the largest, most efficient and highly respected ports as well as those working in its related port services.

The Stroke

Anchoring the circle and globe is a simple stroke. This stroke, inspired by the Chinese Character “one” stands for unity, harmony and alignment of the SPWU members. It is also befitting of SPWU’s status as the very first union to be set up in Singapore.

Typeface of SPWU

The clean, modern typeface depicts the Singapore Port Workers Union’s well known acronym SPWU. Using a customised font specifically created for SPWU, the typeface features a “P” that highlights the professionalism and sophistication of SPWU.
