“It represents how Netcom is open to change and is committed to meet the new needs of its customers in adopting the new “digital future”, even when faced with a period of uncertainty,” he shared.
On his part, the co-founder of Netcom Chong King Fui said that the first logo of the company carried deep and personal value for both the founders.
“I first designed the company’s first logo back in 1995 with such dedication, the design has been with us for more than two and half decades,” he said.
“We were reluctant at first to change but we had to move on with the trend and to welcome a new era. However, we still maintained some of the essences of the first logo so customers can still have the feel of its original elements,” he shared.
