Matisse Company Logo

Why does the Logo look the way it does?

The Matisse part of the logo represents the professional artist paint range – stable, balanced, robust and long lasting. This is the way the logo has been represented for many years so it was deemed necessary to keep the same font and design.nThe new Derivan side of the logo represents the fun side of our products! The traditional format of the font of the word Derivan has been used since the 1970’s however its new look created in 2004 sees it encased in a splash of paint.nThe juxtaposition of the two logos symbolizes the products and the company – committed to consistent high quality manufacture of contemporary and exciting products.
