A contemporary reinterpretation of the historical logo
Drawing inspiration from the sports ranges of the historical brand created in 1979, SLAM now has a new logo that expresses an entirely ITALIAN-MADE identity and style. The logo still has the full and sharp shapes of the original one, but the letters have been sloped 15 degrees to the right, to create a contemporary and high-profile logo, ready to set sail towards the future. The basis was the desire to reaffirm the identity of SLAM as a firm manufacturing high-quality technical clothing for sailing and seafarers. It was decided to go back to the origins, with a contemporary interpretation of the original logo, which has successfully represented and publicised SLAM worldwide for over 35 out of the 43 years of its existence. The new logo has a strong impact and conveys a modern, dynamic and innovative image
Sustainability as a vocation
Respect for the environment is based on our origins as seafarers and our culture of protection of the marine environment. We are partners with One Ocean Foundation and share its values, objectives and search for solutions. That is why we have signed the Charta Smeralda, a code of ethics to share principles and actions to protect the sea and raise public awareness, highlighting the urgent need to address the most pressing problems of the oceans and the marine and coastal ecosystems. SLAM views sustainability and respect for the environment as a commitment and a social responsibility for the future of our children and our planet. The Leon Pancaldo, an 18.5-meter ketch designed by Studio Brenta in the 1980s and restored by Slam through major renovation work, is now a “training ship” and hosts sailing courses organized by SLAM for students of nautical institutes, with the aim of encouraging young people to approach sailing and of teaching them how to sail. With the support of the Menkab il Respiro del Mare Association, the students learn how important it is to respect the marine environment and how protect its fragile ecosystem.
