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 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)

Informative post from my fellow Blogger Celena on her blog Lost Civilizations
(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…

A nameplate of publication is a designed title as it appears on the front page or cover. The term name plate is mainly used in America. It is also called as Masthead in the United Kingdom and many other Commonwealth Nations. In lay man’s terms it is also called as logos of newspapers.
One Love for the Indian Traditional Art- Rangoli. This is from the 19 different types of Rangoli gifted by my sister to my daughter, Venu on her first birthday. Will post these different types of Rangoli some day. This gift has flower Rangoli, flour Rangoli, wood Rangoli, Rangoli on Water, Rangoli below Water, Rangoli from Bangles and many more. My sister really enjoyed making all of these Rangoli.
One Love from the Indian Tribal Art- Warli. This has been demonstrated by Adivasi since ages. Noe it is quite popular and emerged as one of the forms of art. Artists like Jivya Mashe (Written about him in separate post: Jivya Mashe-Indian Warli Art) really took this art form of Warli to the world and at next level through his many national and international exhibitions. We tried this on 6 feet x 18 feet white clothe for a backdrop during the first birthday of my daughter Venu. Dung is applied on the clothe and then by using white colours the composition is illustrated. Me and my brother enjoyed while making this! This interesting method of preparing Warli is explained on D’source, IIT Bombay Website.

State of Mind – Different photographs different states of mind. Immense power of Mind. Sometimes sentimental, slippery like water gel beads! Sometimes enlightened, depicted by Dhwaj- Flag on the Temple! Sometimes ignited like a torch! Very few times disciplined, struggling for everyday! And sometimes creative like a Child. Asking for the Childhood back! In Marathi there is song Lahanpan Dega Deva- God, Please take me back in Childhood!

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.

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.

While browsing, came across some of the learning resources on calligraphy. A lot of Project Ideas are mentioned at Dancing Pen Caligraphy. Exhibtion of the work by some of world renowned calligraphers is interesting and can be visited at Calligraphy Expo. The project participants are from almost every corner of the globe. It has books on calligraphy mainly in Russian. I would like to recommend Art of Calligraphy by David Harris which is in English. We can down load the book here.
