In reality, we have been using our new CVT logo for almost a year and yet, we forgot to update our website to share it with the world. The ideas for this logo came from two logo designs that were submitted during our logo contest last year. One student submitted a design that included the world with the figures of people surrounding the globe, holding hands. Another student submitted a design that included the open Bible with the letters ‘CVT’ in the center and, inside those letters, put the colors of the Thai flag. The committee could not decide which design they liked the best, so we gave both students ‘First Prize’ and asked whether we could use aspects of their design in our new logo. A local print shop artist combined the two into our new official logo.
This logo now appears on our stationery and on all important documents relating to the Christian Volunteers in Thailand program. We hope – when the budget allows – to have some t-shirts made with this design embroidered on them for our staff. Needless to say, we love the new logo and have received numerous compliments.
