OICA Program Logos
The UPD-OICA Program logos were envisioned to be flowers that grow from the “tree of life” that the office’s logo resembles. Inspired by how flowers play a key role in ensuring the persistence and development of plant life through time, the logos act as metaphors to how the programs they represent aspire to nurture and support the artist-scholars of UP Diliman.
