GLPC, Fourchon Enter 2021 With a Fresh New Look
(CUT OFF, LA) – The Greater Lafourche Port Commission (GLPC) launched its new Fourchon logo today, January 14, 2021, with assistance from Thibodaux-based brand consultancy agency, White Car.
With input from the GLPC and its dedicated Board of Commissioners, White Car worked in concert with the GLPC’s communications team to produce a main logo that focuses on Port Fourchon’s bright future as it continues to act as the central Gulf’s premier service and supply hub for the offshore oil and gas industry.
“We believe the timing of this logo revamp felt right,” GLPC Executive Director Chett Chiasson said. “As we enter 2021, we are filled with fresh hope and optimism that this year will be a better one for our region, state, and country. This logo reflects that optimism with its bold coloring and design. It also sets the stage for the future to create new opportunities for our port and community through its use.”
The central theme of the logo highlights the grid-like development of Port Fourchon whose bulkheads intermix with the adjacent waterways of Bayou Lafourche and the Gulf of Mexico. The blocks depict the solid nature of the Port that has resulted through advanced mitigation techniques, which have helped add substantial land as well as commerce to south Louisiana through the years.
“This logo is something we as a commission are very proud of,” GLPC Board President Chuckie Cheramie said. “It is a logo that stands out just like our tenants and users of the Port. As we move ahead as a Commission and Port, it is important to have a logo that tells the story of how this Port has modernized itself to meet the challenges of the 21st-century through the hard work of many; including those early on that made the Port what it is today, which is the service provider for nearly 100-percent of all Deepwater Offshore Energy Production and Activity in the Gulf of Mexico.”
The main Fourchon logo is only one of several subset logo’s that showcase the GLPC and its many assets such as: Harbor Police, the South Lafourche “Leonard J. Miller, Jr.” Airport, and the Port Fourchon Wetlands Park. Chiasson noted that although the logo(s) may have changed, the mission of the Port as being Ready Today, and Ready for Tomorrow, remains the same, adding that the Port continues to service the oil and gas industry while maintaining a sincere openness to expand in to other areas dealing with LNG, wind energy, solar power, and project cargo, to name few.
We encourage the community to be on the look out for our logo, as it will serve as the new identity of the GLPC and Port Fourchon, Chiasson said.
“I would like to thank all our tenants and users for making us who we are. When developing this logo, it was not lost on me that without our service and supply industries that form the backbone of Port Fourchon, exciting moments like this are not possible. Like our tenants and users, we welcome a prosperous future where this logo is what people think of when someone says, ‘Fourchon,’” he said.
