Our redesigned logo
Today we are proud to present our redesigned logo that kept some elements and can easily be shortened, displayed, printed and also exists in an icon variant. It displays a leaf. Although not all plants produce leaves, our leaf directs deeply into processes and interactions in plants and thus summarizes the scientific interest that all our members share.
Following colour theory, we kept the green colour to symbolize photosynthesis as well as flourishing and fresh green leaves in spring. The green already was in our logo and online appearances for many years. It is combined with the blue hue, which was the second colour on our website since 2006 and was chosen to display our trustworthiness. The new Roboto Slab font is more modern than the formerly used Georgia. We kept serifs to embrace our long tradition, since DBG - founded in 1882 - is one of the oldest scientific societies for plant sciences in the world.
Our new logo was first presented to almost 100 of our members attending our general assembly at the Botanik-Tagung in Bonn this summer.
If you are one of DBG's members you can log into our Intranet and download the images separately for print and online purposes (Log-In required).
