New Powell Logo

    Powell Flutes recently announced the launch of a new logo. The redesign and conception offers a glimpse into the history of Powell Flutes. In 1927, Verne Q. Powell created the widely recognized triangle. However, his first logo created in 1910 was made of his initials. The origin of the Q. remains a mystery; but he would probably say it stands for Quality. The new logo maintains the triangle and the three initials but adds Powell Flutes matching the font with the ten other Buffet Campion Group instruments along with Boston, the city of flute-making.
