The Chess Piece
Crown: The crown has been taken from the old version of the logo and incorporated in to the new version. The combination of the the crown on the queen chess piece is a visual representation of the two co-owners becoming one “piece”. This visual also emphasizes and plays with the “Dare to be Different” slogan that has been a part of The Thrash Corp from the start.

The response to the website you built is incredible, no amazing, no words can not be described and is very happy the day when we met each other the first day and the friendship that was forged.
I enjoyed working with The Thrash Corp, I felt they understood my business, worked quickly and offered practical advice. They also added little extras that I liked. I would recommend them to do your website.
The Thrash Corp provided a Wordpress website development service to my company. I can recommend The Thrash Corp based on my experience of their service as: most knowledgeable on web development & SEO, reliable, delivers on commitment made and within the agreed budget. We had a good working relationship and Riaan responded timeous on all requests and emails. The Thrash Corp definitely offered value for money and I am most pleased with the end result.
What a creative team! Not to mention always friendly and insightful. Designing everything from the EVE logo, website and app. With their eye for design, these guys gave me exactly what I didn't know I need for my business to visually represent ourselves. Walking me through the process from the beginning to the end, explaining the role of each element, was a breeze. I would highly recommend The Thrash Corp to anyone looking for a fresh eye and creative edge to their designs and identity.
The Thrash Corp team has immense talent and that creative edge when it comes to design, your ideas allows for the client to refresh their mindset and therefore creating the ideal artwork. Quoting Steve Jobs “You sell them something they never knew they needed/wanted” in the same way The Thrash Corp brings light to a project and encourage/promote a fresh look and feel something the client never thought was possible.
