Out with the old and in with the new at LOFA

A New Year always heralds change, ordinarily it’s a list of New Year’s Resolutions, a sense of new beginnings and a New Year full of exciting possibilities.


Not wanting to be left behind LOFA are starting this new decade as they mean to go on, with a new look and new branding, making their resolution to be bolder and brighter for 2020. Taking inspiration from the Spring and Summer months, their new logo is a sun shaped symbol paired with an impactful font which makes the brand more recognisable and ever so slightly stylish.


The LOFA Logo has always been, and will always be, synonymous with quality products, great customer service and value for money. LOFA members who show this symbol on their products and on their websites will instantly stand out from the crowd.


PLUS! The new branding also ushers in a new make over for the LOFA website.


So what’s NEW?


Well for starters a Product Showcase highlighting each and every one of the LOFA members, offering great imagery and a little bit of insight into who they are and what they do, there is an About Us page and a News & Events section so you can keep up to date with everything LOFA, a LOFA Assured page explaining all about the initiative that LOFA have been working on for the last 4 years, bringing cushions to the market place that comply with the current Government Fire Safety Regulations and lastly an area where members can log in and have current LOFA information at their finger tips.


So a bold, bright, image led, easy to navigate website but above all a great visitor experience.


New Year, New LOFA!
