The APPS logo was selected after a Society-Wide design competition
conducted by the 1991-1993 APPS Management Committee (Queensland
region under Dr Chris Hayward as President). Several designs were
submitted and voted and the design submitted by Ian Harvey won.
Ian’s design contains a stylised Eucalyptus leaf, a lesion drawn as
an Aboriginal dot drawing, and a koru. The koru is not “a maori-ist
tattoo”, but depicts an immature fern frond, which has connotations
of new life, regeneration, health and probably much more. The koru
is a very common and key feature in all forms of Maori art and has
become very international, featuring (among other places) on tattoos
of pop stars and world champion heavyweight boxers of doubtful
repute! The APPSnet logo shown above is a 1998 animated adaptation
of Ian’s design by Peter Williamson.
