I had at first created the original logo using the same symbols that the new one still uses, however, I was not able to articulate in-depth the themes of the logo. This was mainly because the elements were left too obscure and unresolved. I now feel it has resolved, as there is unity to the symbols, which give it balance and direction while also using the art form that speaks to the area that the organization represents.
There are three general themes that this NIȽ/TU,O logo addresses: change, connection/relation and direction. Change is initially represented by transitions of colour. The blues and greens change from dark to light or night to day and vice-versa. In this context, time also represents change, as indicated by the passing of days, or the moon/sun and the single star, the first and last star of the day. Change is also renewal, or new beginnings, which is the baby silhouette, the WEXES - frog, who traditionally symbolizes new life and beginnings, and again, the transition from day to night.
