Professor G. P. Patil, Director of the Center, conceptualized the overall
concept and the approach for the Center Symbol and its Design, whereas,
Yeshwant Chaudhary, Former President of the Society of Industrial Designers
of India, visualized the graphic concept of the Earth evolved in the
cosmic order, and set to establish the harmonious relationship between
the humankind and other ecological beings rendered from mathematical
numerals. Interesting still is the rhythm achieved between the gradation
of spaces and the thickness of lines weaving through each other into
a structural harmony in totality.
This symbol is appreciated world over by highly talented professionals
for the design thinking that has gone into its expression of the message.
