As a Content Consultant and Branding Expert, I engage in many clients discussions. After the detailed discussion, our designers start with designing logo accordingly. Colors that are used in the logo are taken as primary standard colors to be followed in all promotional aspects like business cards, websites, leaflets, pamphlets, brochures, etc. During 2014, when Telangana State is formed as the 29th state of India, Telangana State Government, Telangana State Power Generation Corporation (TSGENCO), Telangana State Police Department and Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) were working on official Logos / Emblems. I got rare opportunity to work with Telangana Government to contribute content. I contributed “Logic of Logo” script for those FOUR official logos.
First let me briefly tell you the significance of Logic of Logo in branding.
- Logic of Logo explains the various colors used in design of the logo along with its meaning.
- Further, it denotes the various graphical elements used the logo along with their relevance.
- It also explains about various punchlines / catchphrases used in logo along with their significance.
- These scripts of Logic of Logo are used in presenting the logos and getting the final approvals.
- Majority of business / governance organisations include them on their websites and gazettes for future reference.
I am going to share my experience of writing Logic of Logo for those four major Government establishments in four separate articles for the benefit of idiya.net and storyhut.net readers.
Telangana Police :: Logic of Logo
Telanaga State Police Logo is shown in Shield shape that evidently represents a warrior’s primary piece of defensive equipment. Shield denotes a unique identity for bravery and impeccable sincerity. It also accentuates positive energy in action, warmth in understanding the emotion of citizens, strong willpower in taking courageous decisions and enabling conducive environment for citizens for peaceful life.
The Red colored block with the word “POLICE” vibrantly conveys that Telangana State Police is for enabling citizens with wholesome protection day and night.
The emphasis on Black color denotes that qualities like Straightforwardness, Authority and Power.
The Blue color represents the objectives of Telangana State Police such as peace, tranquility, harmony, order, loyalty, cleanliness and confidence.
The Light Gold color symbolizes unique traits of Telangana State Police like success, achievement, triumph, prosperity, quality, prestige, sophistication, value and elegance.
Four Asiatic Lions standing back to back with the adage “Satyameva Jayate” signifies power, courage, pride and confidence.
It is also includes three essential principles Honor, Duty and Compassion with which Telangana State Police intends to operate and offer its support to all citizens.
The symbolism of nested leafs depicts the noble intention of creating lasting relationships and to experience significant change for the better life.
Overall, the insignia personifies the shared vision of instilling security, confidence and peace among the citizens of Telangana State.
Today, whenever I cross any a police person, a police vehicle or a police station and see the Telangana Police logo, I feel very elated and pat myself on back.
