About the GIA Logo

The new GIA corporate mark was designed to perfectly balance two sets of needs which are equally vital and yet seemingly at odds with each other. Firstly, the mark has to reflect the strengths that come the association’s rich organisational history. These include qualities such as Credibility, Respectability, Sophistication, Elegance and International appeal.

To forge ahead with the times, the logo also embraces the future, seeking to be Personable, Dynamic, Bold, Versatile and Contemporary.

To achieve these goals, the new logo carefully blends elements of the old and the new into a coherent and dynamic design.
