SASW 50th Anniversary Logo

About the logo

Introduction of the 50th Anniversary Logo

Logo design concept:

As the association celebrate 50th anniversary, the logo symbolizes SASW as a sailboat, riding through the waves with the fraternity of social workers through up and downs, being in the same boat together!

The SASW logo is at the core of the design. The tip of the “sailboat” is the colours of SASW, like a flag raised high on the sailboat. Both act as beacons calling out to the social workers to connect with the fraternity.

The shape of the logo is representative of both “50” and “S” in social work.

When Shen Yong design this logo specially for 50th anniversary, it symbolises how SASW is riding through the waves and continue to strive towards a better future with the fraternity.
