The abstracted dolphin in the KERN logo. Special features, transferable to business life
Why does KERN have the dolphin in the company logo with two “bows”?
Why is a dolphin a good fit for business succession?
Seek solutions, constantly questioning themselves. When dolphins don’t get what they want, they change their ways very quickly.
Dissociation and taking meta-positions in strategy development
Dolphins do not give up easily. Unless they see a benefit in it - in terms of a better solution.
Dolphins enjoy winning. Their brain is capable of emotional feelings. Managers who act accordingly do not feel the need for someone else to lose.
Dolphins work well with others, but also act competently on their own. Cooperating brings more in the aggregate than competing or independently seeking private advantage.
Visions of one’s own path, of the team’s goal or of the company’s goal are the first thing to create identification with a goal.
Dolphins love precise, clean and above all simple ? elegant ? solutions. solutions. Elegant negotiation means, for example, that the solution must lead to long-term satisfaction for both parties and make sense.
Note on the history of the dolphin in the KERN brand logo:
In 2004 until the beginning of 2023, we had equipped our brand logo with a stylised, jumping dolphin. As part of our further internationalisation and a relaunch of our brand logo and subline, we have strongly “modernised” and abstracted the dolphin. The two dynamic arcs above the N now symbolise the dolphin from KERN’s history.

And KERN has been an active supporting member of the Society to Save the Dolphins for years.
The Society for the Rescue of Dolphins (Gesellschaft zur Rettung der Dolphine e.V.) campaigns worldwide for wild dolphins, the protection of their habitats, for sustainability, marine conservation, gentle dolphin tourism and against dolphinaria.
