GUI


Logo ‘Gui’ is the Chinese name of the Osmanthus flower. The flower is known for it’ ivory and rounded petals. It bears a distinctive scent and is representative of the oriental flowers. It embodies the elegance and timelessness of the great Orient. The flower is perched on top of a sinuous tail, carefully shaped to emulate the free but controlled spirit of calligraphy strokes. As a result, the Osmanthus flower takes on the form of the letter ‘g’, which stands for ‘gui’. Warm colors like red and orange were used to emphasize the oriental roots of the brand while teal is chosen to signify fresh ideas and contemporary attitudes. GUI corporate identity consists of 2 parts: our symbol and the corporate name. The symbol may be used separated from the logotype. Decisions regarding the use of the symbol as a decorative element will be made by the Creative department of GUI.

GUI 3D version

GUI corporate identity must NOT be redrawn, reproportioned or modified through color in any way.

In running copy, the capitalization of our corporate name should always appear as, “GUI”.

The success of GUI identity depends on the correct use of the GUI logo. Fig.1. The vertical version is the preferred version and should be used whenever possible.

folding Dear Miss Goh: In response to your interest in logos and corporate design, I have put together some thoughts that I hope will help to provide some background. A good portion of the text are the thoughts and comments of one of themost gifted designers of all time, Paul Rand. His stature as one of the world's leading graphic designers is incontestable. For half a century his pioneering work in the field of advertising and corporate design and typography has exerted a profound influence on the design profession. He, almost singlehandedly, transformed "commercial art" from a practice that catered to the lowest common denominator of taste to one that could assert its place among the fine arts. There are as many reasons for designing a new logo, or updating an old one, as there are opinions. The belief that a new or updated logo will be some kind of charm that will magically transform any business is not uncommon. A redesigned logo may have the advantage of implying something new, something improved, but this is short-lived if the institution doesn't live up to its claims. Opposed to the idea of arbitrarily changing a logo, there's the "let's leave it alone" school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sometimes wise, more often superstitious, occasionally nostalgic or, at times, even trepidatious. If in the business of communications "image is king", the essence of this image, the logo, is a jewel in its crown. The role of the logo is to point, to designate, in as simple a manner as possible. Simple ideas as well as simple designs are, ironically, the products of circuitous mental purposes. Simplicity is difficult to achieve, yet worth the effort. Design, good or bad, is a vehicle of memory. Good design adds value of some kind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it respects the viewer and rewards the entrepreneur. It is easier to remember a well designed image than one that is muddled. A well designed logo, in the end, is a reflection of the business it symbolizes. It connotes a thoughtful and purposeful enterprise, and mirrors the quality of its products and services. It is good public relations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a harbinger of good will. It says "We care".
