Introducing the new and improved Go Girl Avatars!

The Go Girl, Go for IT Communications has been hard at work over the last 2 months to work on evolving the Go Girl brand and we are thrilled to introduce you to our new look and feel. Introducing our new Go Girl avatars!

 

 

 

 

 

 

As part of this process, we have made the decision to retire the Go Girl pink head after 16 years of representing the brand. She has done us proud however the team felt it was time to evolve and continue the growth from 2016 when we introduced the Go Girl Avatar with the pink and navy blue colour scheme.

Secondly, we have updated the Go Girl colour palat moving away from the traditional pink. We wanted to make sure that Go Girl is empowering girls to think outside of the box and away from the stereotypes we are all too familar with. As a result the main colors for Go Girl are Marigold, Black and a pink.

We now have 2 colour schemes – Marigold is our primary scheme and black is our secondary. You will see these popping up on our social media and other marketing material over the next 24 hours.

These new avatars will continue to break glass ceilings with the Go Girl team. We hope you like them!

There are a lot of amazing things happening with the Go Girl. For those who are not already following us, please check out and follow our social media channels to stay up to date with all things Go Girl.
