Relevant quote
Consisting of two elements, the logo combines the point of connection symbol and the "Southlandind" word mark. The abstraction of the engineering symbol for the point of connection represents the connection that Southland has with its clients and the internal connections that Southland maintains to serve clients better from beginning to end.

Opinion

Don't like the "S" icon at all but very much digging the "ind" mashed up with the "and" despite the readability issues. Above all, however, any national-size company with an old logo like Southland's deserves to be commended for moving forward.
