Designing Dharma Logos


This month I designed a logo for Tara Communicatie, a communication company from The Netherlands. 

It depicts a precious jewel on a lotus. Jewels are typical tibetan buddhist symbols that are painted on thangkas and other items, such as cabinets, mani-wheels and rugs. They can be depicted with or without flames. In general, a jewel is seen as something very precious and therefore perceived as an offering. The flames surrounding it symbolize the burning away /purifying delusions and ignorance.
