What is the meaning behind your logo?

The Ocean Futures Society logo depicts two divers working as a team and is referred to as the “manfish.” The design represents the fact that we all depend on the ocean to sustain life and together we must all support the health of the ocean.

The OFS manfish logo is designed by Jean-Charles Roux, a longtime friend and colleague of Jean-Michel and his father, Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Roux was instrumental in the design and look of the Cousteau Society on-camera dive team in "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau" television series, which featured the "bumble bee" yellow/black dive ensemble, and later the distinctive look of the silver suits, helmets, and underwater scooters. He also designed the unique blue dive suits for Jean-Michel's OFS Expedition Team.
