The name: STIPLINK
The name STIPLINK derives from the word ‘stippled’, combined the word link. We want to put the ‘INK’ in ‘LINK’ but leaving a lasting impression and our mark. The name was a natural progression from the logo which was created initially, using the stippling technique.
Our logo incorporates the process of stippling which is a way of marking something using numerous dots to create a unique effect. It represents many singular elements working together to create something better. also that there are different forms and stages of innovation. The process of creating this logo was meticulous and required time and effort which is something that we will put into all of STIPLINK’s endeavours.
