EGI Announces New Logo


EGI Announces New Logo

Cambridge, Massachusetts, November 4, 2010 – The Ethiopian Global Initiative (EGI), an international nonprofit organization of students and young professionals committed to the transformation of Ethiopia, revealed its new logo this morning.

The need for a new logo with a simple color scheme and distinct look was evident to leaders at EGI when they decided to design a new logo earlier this year. The new logo presents a new brand image for EGI, a reflection of the organization’s aspiration to be the home for innovative global leaders.

“The Ethiopian Global Initiative aims to become a global hub of solutions for Ethiopia and its new brand image represents exactly that, the long-term goals of the organization,” said President Samuel Gebru at the logo’s launch.

The Ethiopian Global Initiative’s logo is designed to engage a new generation of innovative and dynamic student and young professional leaders. The color red was chosen as a symbol because of its integral part of the Ethiopian identity, the third color in the Ethiopian tricolor flag. The traditional Ethiopian “gojo” hut is used to represent a basic shelter for all humanity and for housing innovative and transformative ideas that will benefit Ethiopia’s development.
