1986 was a year to remember. Ferris Bueller took a day off, we were walking like Egyptians, stores couldn’t keep Cabbage Patch Kids on the shelf and Dr. Chris Findlay, after 20 years of industry, research and academic experience, founded Compusense Inc. As our taste in music and movies has evolved (hopefully), the last 27 years has seen Compusense evolve and grow into what we are today, a leading figure in the sensory science and consumer research industry with an , dozens of published papers and numerous invaluable collaborative relationships.
As we look forward to 2014, this past year has proven to be another memorable one for Compusense. We have recently moved into a brand new facility, allowing us to accommodate our expanding client base, growing Compusense team and more sensory and consumer panels. In addition to our exciting move, as of today, we have officially launched the new Compusense logo.
But before we delve into these new and exciting changes, let’s take a moment to look backat the evolution of the Compusense logo over the last 27 years.
Our new logo, skillfully designed by our friends at Quarry Communications, is comprised of five curved elements representing the five senses. Each piece effortlessly comes together to produce a mirrored ‘C’ formation in our distinctive Compusense red.
In addition to our new logo, we have also recently undergone another very exciting change. After 10 years at our previous location, we have just moved to a brand new facility located at 255 Speedvale Avenue West, Guelph Ontario, Canada. The surge of energy that has come along with our new space is undeniable. There is a buzz of excitement in the air with the anticipation of what’s to come in our new home.
Our new facility is much larger, in a convenientlocation for panelist access and has been entirely custom-designed to suit our unique requirements. Our sensory lab space, located on the first floor, has almost tripled, allowing much more space for our sensory team to conduct our growing number of consumer and sensory panels.
The second floor, which accommodates our Client Services, Development and Operations teams, is a space that was designed and built to suit our client support needs and a space to research, develop, create and share new ideas.
2013 marks the beginning of a new era for Compusense in many ways. While our recent changes may appear to be external transformations, these changes are truly symbolic of our continued growth and development. However, from the beginning, one thing that has remained the same is our dedication to providing our clients with superior sensory evaluation software and services. Our revamped look and new facility demonstrates our continued commitment to product development, sensory research, collaboration and growth, making 2014 and beyond exciting years ahead.
