Institutes add colour to logos
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, June 26
The Government Central Crafts Institute for Women, Sector 11, and Industrial Training Institute, Sector 28, are all set to bring out new coloured logos in place of the old black and white ones.

The new logos have been developed under the guidance of S.K. Setia, director, technical education, and are approved by UT home secretary Krishna Mohan. The logos have been visualised and designed by Anjali Aggarwal, faculty, Government College of Arts, Sector 10.

The logo of the Government Central Crafts Institute for Women includes diamonds, symbolising extreme craftsmanship and cutting creativity; sun, denoting light of education; and women signifying awareness and enlightenment towards economic freedom. The pattern of these women figures is a folk motif that gives the new logo a unique combination of traditional look and contemporary designing.

Similarly, the logo of the Industrial Training Institute is a representation of four fields of education provided by the institute: Wheel for automobile, a CD and mouse for electronics, computers and information technology, gears for mechanical trade and plug for electrical trade. These four parts constitute the major cycle for society which is represented through the blue-coloured wheel moving clockwise.

Setia said, “It was long pending, the earlier logos were black and white. Moreover, with the new multilingual logos, dynamism will be added to the institutes. The same logos have also been used in the prospectus this year. Those, who cannot read or write, will also be able to follow what these institutes are all about through the logos.”
