LOGO RATIONALE
The main concept of the logo is focused on creating an icon that is easily
understood, fun, simple and straight forward, conveys the essence of
the tropical nature of the Maldives and loud enough to grab everyones
attention at first glance.
To make things simple, the icons carry stylized versions of Sun (hospitality/
climate), Sea (environment / marine life) and Sand (islands / people / flora
and fauna); sand depicted as a piece of coral which are the building blocks
of the Maldivian islands. The overlapping of these elements connect each
other to resemble the strength of Maldivian tourism industry.
The typeface used is specially designed for the logo and is not a font. The
character of the typeface has it’s laid back island feel to it. The text being
detached to the icons allows the freedom to write ‘VISIT MALDIVES’ in
different languages for different markets.
The careful selection of colors carry a spectrum of hues seen in the
Maldives to reflect its tropical nature; climate, ocean, marine life, people,
eco system and way of life. It is also thoughtfully designed in a way that
it looks good both on white and black backgrounds. The arrangement of
colors used has purpose and design psychology. Both the elements and
the colors are arranged in a way to lead the eye of the viewer in a circular
motion within the logo with high legibility / visibility of words and icons in
one glance.

Proper use of the Logo
For consistency the logo should always be used in its original
proportions. Distortions and separation of elements of the logo should
always be avoided in print and other physical media. If necessary the
elements of the logo can be separated for creative video animations
provided that the logo in its original format and proportions be viewed
in the end.

and other colorful backgrounds, it is more effective to use the logo
with its stone shaped white bounding box. This applies to die-cut
stickers as well.

of breathing space around
