Technology Visionary

Our Brand


The ideogram logo is an abstraction of the A and I abbreviation from the word ‘Artificial Intelligence’.


The bold geometric shapes embody the hero characteristics of the brand, with its shape and size contrasting with the wordmark. This symbolises the inspiration behind all this—the potential of exponential development in artificial intelligence and the possibilities that it opens up for our own personal development as individuals, and even as a species.


The symbol/ shape is inspired by the caret symbol used in mathematics to represent an exponent, such as a square, cube or another exponential power.
