Following the acquisition of the telecoms business of San Miguel Corporation, two of the Philippines’ telco giants recently launched their new logos symbolizing the convergence of PLDT and Smart, combining fixed and wireless technologies to serve both individual and enterprise subscribers. The new logo also comes with a change in name from Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company to PLDT Inc.
“Rather than allow ourselves to be disrupted by new technologies, we are disrupting ourselves. We have embarked on a digital pivot to enable us to serve the increasing needs of our people’s digital lifestyle and the country’s growing digital economy.”
Manny V. Pangilinan, Chairman & CEO, PLDT-Smart
From the press release, “the new PLDT and Smart logo is shaped like a triangle with the three sides representing the Company’s business pillars – exceptional people, meaningful innovations, and our valuable customers. The triangle is also the symbol for Delta, the fourth letter in the Greek alphabet, which stands for change. Taken together, these three pillars create tremendous energy that will enable our customers to achieve their limitless potential. The triangle’s three sides support each other. Thus, an inherent strength flows harmoniously among the sides to sustain the structure.”
I’d like to take an emphasis on the triangle, the delta, and the concept of change in the next paragraphs. But first, let’s take a trip down memory lane.Read More »
If you think we’ve had enough of the Graphika Manila talks, think again. We’re still on a high from all the inspiring things every speaker shared! Different stories, different ways of creating — but one thing made us gather here: passion.
Before he started pitching those crazy awesome ideas, Matthew Encina told us about his love for video games and how he spent thousands of hours playing them. Who’d have known that something our moms kept telling us back in the days were unproductive-activities-go-stretch-your-muscles-play-outside turned out to be a good thing after all?

Is the amount of information presented in the President’s most recent State of the Nation Address too overwhelming and hard to digest? We’ve simplified the SONA into some key points and graphs for you.
At one point in the book, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said, “one can’t believe impossible things.” The Queen replied, “I daresay you haven’t had much practice. When I was younger, I always do it for half an hour each day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Give them crayons, a piece of paper and the liberty to draw whatever, or wherever they want.
They’d go crazy scribbling lines in a multitude of directions and in a splash of colors far more extensive than the rainbow. You’ll see them doodling all over the paper, floor and walls. And, they wouldn’t feel sorry that they did.
We were all children once, unafraid and relentless in our ways. We colored outside the lines, before we grew up and we were taught to stay inside them. We used to travel to worlds our imaginations built, before we understood the world we live in, and decided this was enough for us. We’ve become so confined and fearful of how we should fit in, that we’ve lost touch of how we naturally stood out.
I hope we find it again in ourselves to be unapologetic for who we are, to be courageous enough to express ourselves creatively, and to live our lives uniquely.
