Our Logo – The Dandelion seed

Weed or herb? You decide. The value of what you see depends on who you are.


Our logo is the seed of the dandelion.

To most people, the dandelion is known as a weed. But what a lot of people don’t know is that, when cultivated, the dandelion is one of the most valuable and useful plants in nature.  The dandelion is known for its nutritional, healing and medicinal properties.  The value of a dandelion is dependent on our knowledge and perception of its value.

If you place a dandelion plant in your kitchen garden and cultivate it, it can be one of your most valuable plants. Dandelions are used to make beer, wine, salads, and natural medicine. Quite simply, if you choose to cultivate dandelions, you will reap their rewards. So is a dandelion a weed or a herb?  You decide.  The value of what you see depends on your understanding and accommodation.

A weed is a plant in an environment where it is not welcomed. If the plant is transferred to an environment where it is welcomed – it turns into a herb.

People on the autism spectrum often struggle to feel welcome in the labour market. Specialisterne strives to understand and accommodate people on the spectrum in order to make them feel welcomed.  On our logo, the blue square around the dandelion represents the open sky of opportunities, with a rounded corner to illustrate that even though we are in a tough market, we take into consideration individual needs when creating our work environment.

The “I” letters in Specialisterne have the yellow color of the mature dandelion flower, to underscore the link between the logo and the name of the foundation.

The tagline, “Passion for Details”, states the focus of all of our activities at Specialisterne.

We firmly believe that it is not the individual who must change, but the way the labour market is conducted- so that dandelions can thrive.
