01. Fresh Logo

The new logo fuses together an owl and magnifying glass, two powerful symbols of knowledge. This word mark typeface remains clean throughout.

The logo can be placed over images as well as stand alone. For cropping, the main top half should be clearly visible.

02. Visual System

03. New Features

To minimize the clutter on the current website and app, we went for a straight search bar. The background image changes periodically to keep visitors & users engaged with the content.
