We just put up fresh signage for our Perth manufacturing and distribution office. The redesign includes the new Safescape font and a separate sign for Evie, the echidna mascot of Bortana EV.
The Bortana EV logo was developed when our vehicles first began Beta production and our Bendigo office (where the vehicles are being made) had a very curious and spikey visitor on multiple occasions.
Despite being kicked out numerous times, "Evie" as the echidna came to be known, kept popping up in the end of air vents and even in our employees' boots! Taking that as a sign, we named her Evie, which correlates to the ‘EV’ in Bortana EV.
Evie inspired us to develop an aggressive, electrified version of the echidna image to be the vehicle’s logo. With echidnas being unique, robust and strong it was the perfect animal to adorn the Bortana EV.
