Over the years, Cisco’s partner logos have gone through a number of iterations…
Some of you may remember the old-school Cisco logo with the white bridge on a teal background.
Who could forget the updated Cisco logo with a white backdrop?
But the latest partner logo update brings a modern, streamlined look and feel and is in line with the Cisco brand. These new partner logos help partners more effectively represent, leverage, and extend the Cisco brand to their customers.
Cisco is also actively promoting these logos to end customers to raise awareness of and differentiation for partners and your unique capabilities. Customers will quickly identify these logos with a partner’s given expertise, helping them find the right partner to help them build the right solution. Start using your new partner logo to promote your expertise today.
But back to the contest and how you can win. Simply share your updated or new marketing assets featuring your new Cisco partner logo, and be entered into a drawing to win US$2000 in Joint Marketing Funds. Five winners will be selected in August 2012. All you need to do is show us your partner logo.

You Cisco partners are a creative lot—when we asked you to send us your thoughts on how Cisco products improve the network, we discovered that so many of you are true writers at heart.
We also found that Cisco products have impacted your customers’ bottom line and improved productivity.
