VCLA Visual Identity

Logo Download (ZIP)

A complex, “living” logo has different appearances. It is organized in four combinations using the abbreviation VCLA and the logic symbols ∧, ⊃, ¬, and ∀. Its role is to show the dynamics and wealth of the subject, and to represent the uniting, experimental, dynamic and cooperative character of the institution.
The logic symbols ∧ (and), ⊃ (implies), ¬ (not) and ∀ (for all) are mirroring VCLA (Vienna Center of Logic and Algorithms). Therefore the Vienna Center of Logic and Algorithms can be also read in logic symbols and vice versa.
