This popular quotation will suffice to attempt to explain this idea, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” – Albert Einstein.
We have underestimated and totally disregarded the reason and purpose of making good logos in Nigeria. As a matter of fact, the Greek meaning of logos is “reason”. But it became a technical term in philosophy beginning with Heraclitus (ca. 535–475 BC), who used the term to define ‘a principle of order and knowledge’.
Following in this manner of thought and upon the backdrop of our current economic recession in Nigeria; we should bear in mind the need to ‘reason’ upon these questions; what will persuade anyone to spend their money to buy from you? Why should anyone be loyal and upright to a government or its agencies? How will your business stand the test of time? What will make your small business become a brand? How will the Nigerian nation remain feasible and ethnically prosperous? What will make true commercial success?
Now these kind of questions and more will be proffered answers in the much anticipated tweet chat between foremost Nigerian logo maker – Dayo Abiola as he bares his mind on the topic: Celebration Of Logo with Chaste Inegbedion, connvener of S6startUP – dubbed Africa’s Shark Tank For Global Collaboration.
