Excellent Logo

I found this logo of Karnataka on the back of a KSTDC bus, and was very impressed:

Karnataka logo very well done 111107

There’s a “abhinaya hasta” at the beginning, though I am not so sure about that…then a waterfall, then a horn,then pillars signifying architecture,then a palm tree, then a jungle creeper,then a temple pagoda, then an elephant, and last of all, what has put Karnataka on the world map…the computer mouse!

Someone has done an excellent job of the logo design! A heart-warming sign to come across when away from home!

    The logo is simple, elegant, and aesthetic in design. In one delectable sweep, the logo has carried the quint esence of Namma Kannada culture and its people – from abhinaya hasta (Karnataka is famous for its Yakshagana sampradaya and its eminent singers like Gangubhai Hangal, Mallikarjun Mansoor of Hindustani stream) to the mouse (refelecting the `Silicone Valley of India’s’ supremacy in IT field).

    This is the old Karnataka Tourism logo, which is no longer in use now. I think it was designed by Triton Advertising when the agency used to handle the account. Now the account is with Stark Advertising, who has designed the new logo (which is not so engaging or self-explantory, but a cleaner one – probably going with the current design trends). You can check the new one here: http://www.karnatakatourism.org

    This post & contents are right up my street. Branding apart, Karnataka’s tourism potential is awesome. Unfortunate, the capabilities of people at the helm is NOT!
    BTW, Sriram, there’s a lot of elasticity in the meaning between ‘Silicon’ & ‘Silicone’! Comprehendo?
