NEXTGEN LOGO

Presented by Cinq Sens Communication

Le logo

The logo conveys the evolution of a young woman’s journey in motorsport and her daily life, born with a difference. The letters MSL are the initials of Marie-Soleil Labelle. The initials MS are clearly visible; the L represents a portion of the race track, which is Marie-Soleil’s second home. The choice of colors and definitions: The black color represents the shadow. This shadow moves at a faster speed than the object intercepting the sun’s rays. The shadow informs the experience that the next generation is right behind, regardless of the difference. The black color represents the invisibility of the details and challenges faced by a person born with a difference (challenges often experienced alone and in silence).

The definition

ALPHA is her choice. Just like the ALPHA Wolf, Marie-Soleil adapts to the environment and succeeds no matter the adversity.

This powerful symbol, ALPHA: represents intelligence | represents leadership | represents courage | represents determination | represents altruism | represents resilience

The meaning

The undetailed ear and the absence of a muzzle and mouth represent Marie-Soleil’s DIFFERENCE, her Developmental Language Disorder (DLD).

The wide-open eye represents the sharp vision that detects every movement in front of Marie-Soleil. Due to her DLD, Marie-Soleil has established visual communication to convey her messages clearly, vividly, and precisely.

The outline of the maple leaf above the eye represents her nationality, which is Canadian.

The gear-made brain represents engineering and the complexity of her daily life.

The number 27 is the respect she pays to the Quebecois driver who left an indelible mark in motorsports; Gilles-Villeneuve.
