With an objective to add something interesting in Earth, this week’s Photo Challenge. Trying to post some of the photographs from my photography portfolio Photolia. These Photos are converted into beautiful quotes. We will explore some of the online resources for type treatments and you will get these wonderful quotes. Hope lovely people will love these too! Quote used is, ‘The Earth has Music for those Who Listen’
T20 cricket is becoming more popular day by day due to thrillers involved in the format of the game. World Cup 2016 is being hosted by India. The excitement in the tournament is increasing as semi finals will be starting on 30th March 2016. With this as opportunity, would love to post the logo designs of the event and also all the former versions till 2007.
Two of the versions, 2014 and 2012 were designed by Australian company WiteKite. They have specialty for designing event and sports worldwide. Every logo is having standard format of presentation. Tournament name, Hosting country and Year is put at the bottom of the logo. Every logo has ball depicted from the number “0”.
Twenty20 World Cup 2016 Logo
Twenty20 World Cup 2014 Logo
The logo uses the colours of the Bangladesh flag with splashes of blue which represents Bangladesh’s iconic waterways (as well as being the ICC’s own colour). The T is made up of cricket stumps and the 0 in the T20 represents the cricket ball complete with Bangladeshi green seam while the white in the design lends an energetic, friendly and youthful feel to the logo.

Twenty20 World Cup 2012 Logo
The event logo also called as Modern Spin. Designed by Australian creative firm Witekite, the logo incorporates and amalgamates the rounded look of the Sinhalese Script. The letter “T” forms a player which leads into the “2” while the “0” incorporates a cricket ball. The colours of the logo, with strong reds and oranges, are seen in both nature and Sri Lankan culture and arts, with their presence in the logo giving them a cricket “spin”. It has a natural sense of movement due to its fluid lines and forward angles. (Source:blackcaps.co.nz)

(Note: I spent my entire commute home thinking of a title for this post and I’m super proud of what I came up with, okay. Except it turns out a lot of people have thought of this punny phrase…

State Bank of India (SBI)
It was the year 1955 when SBI get established and first version of the logo came into existence. It has banyan tree in it and name written in Hindi and English with year of establishment at the bottom of the tree.
Second version of SBI logo is designed by Shekhar Kamat, alumni of NID almost 45 years ago. India’s largest commercial bank and also a fortune 500 company still using the same. There are many interpretations which can be drawn but the philosophy behind the design is here.
As an initial response to the circle form with an open hole, it looks like a key-hole. But, the real concept behind the design being that the circle encloses a common man inside at its centre. The common man represents the centre of the bank’s business. The circle signifies the service of trust, security and perfection for the common man. Moreover, the slogans ‘With you all the way’ and ‘The banker to every Indian’ support the idea of serving the common man as the epicenter of its activities. This logo is a unique example of how to create a quality of a concept with most basic geometric form of design i.e. the circle. (Source: D’source, IIT Bombay)
It is said that inspirations for this design came from the Kankariya Lake in Gujarat and logo too has very close resemblance with the top view of the lake as seen on google map.
Andy Murray Logo
Andy Murray who made history by winning Wimbledon on the 7th day of 7th month and 77 years after the last British, Fred Perry to win the trophy. These numbers and his initials constitute the logo designed by London based Aesop Agency. This identity mark used as Andy Murray logo, got mixed responses saying its resemblance to many of the existing logos.
It says the logo is modern mark that captures Andy’s energy and spirit whilst subtly referencing his affinity with the number ‘77’. It’s simple and striking, with heraldic cues that echo his dominance on the court. Source: The Guardian
Novak Djokovic Logo
Novak Djokovic and his team, together with PRpepper web agency, released an official video celebrating new djokovic logo and explaining its meaning. This video elaborates the design process of new djokovic logo and is available on YouTube. It explains the inspiration behind the logo is the Greek alphabet, medieval Serbian lettering and birds in flight.
Rafael Nadal Logo
Nadal’s Logo on his website doesn’t have his initials in it but it references his nickname ‘the raging bull’. It doesn’t have distinguished look like other logos of tennis greats.
Roger Federer Logo
Many heads we saw on the tennis court with two lettered monogram RF. This Roger Federer Logo is inspired by the logo of RF-Cosmetics, a fragrance by his wife Mirka Vavrinec and her father, introduced in 2003. RF-Cosmetics logo was a freehand squiggle depicting letters R and F. Federer wanted that a monogram would offer a connection as direct but not as literal as a team jersey. Federer liked the approach of the logo of cosmetics and suggested that Nike come up with a strategy along the same lines. This lead to Roger Federer Logo came into existence. Source: NY Times.
Need to be thought on what A BALASUBRAMANIAM has said. I strongly support the point he has made in this post!
Today’s list of Padma awards are out and there is no designer, still, in the list. I blogged about this, last year as well. The government finds it fit to recognise Ajay Devgn’s work as worthy of an award but not any of the design stalwarts, who used design to bring about long-lasting changes in society and the profession. To provoke a discussion on the subject, I present here, my list of Padma awards, deserving for design. This is of course, only the beginning. There may many more that I may have missed.
H Kumar Vyas, Design Educator, Ahmedabad H Kumar Vyas deserves a Padma award for pioneering Design education in this country and giving a distinct Indian touch to the curriculum that was launched at NID, when the design programmes began. He continues to influence and contribute to design education, through his books and research.

Sun Rises and We will draw nice Rangoli in front of the house. When we visit to the temple in the evening will experience different shades of life.

A great resourse for the students, professionals in the area of gaphic design. Dr. Paula Dimarco has created this resource using the teaching materials, classwork, students projects and relavant links to the others work. Many pdfs, VDOs, hand on sessions answer all the queries related to the subject. She teaches many courses at CSUN (California State University, Northridge), they are Computer Graphics, History of Graphic Arts, Production Design. The guidlines mentioned for the project work are very useful and clear the fundamentals of the design process. I really cleared my fundamental concept of LOGO Design using the resource she shared. There are tutorials, tips, practice sessions on Photoshop Illustrator also. We can take scheduled course at this webpage. Learn Poster Design, Logo Design, Branding and many things at a single point. I am sure that this is one of the best design resource for gaphic arts on internet.
I would like to thank Dr. D. for inspiring me to learn and practice more deeply, understanding many aspects of Logo Design.
My brother has created this logo first time. This is registered as trademark for a supermarket dealing in home appliances and named as Home Daily. Home Daily is retail outlet for AIMCO Wholesale Warehousing India Private Limited. Orange is used for affordability of the products offered by the shop. The typography is arial and three rounded square indicates the values like integrity, customer satisfaction and equal growth. I would like to receive the comments and suggestion in order to improve the work and reach the professional level.
Thanks in advance. You can read more stuff on logo design
