A brief about the project
NIT Patna approached IDC to redesign their Visual Identity. Metamorphosis from
Bihar college of engineering to National Institute of Technology Patna triggered the idea for a
new identity. Therefore we envisaged a new face, a new begining, to be translated in a visual symbol, brand language, that the Institute could reckon with. The picture above is the three dimensional representation of the symbol.

Design Philosophy for the symbol:
The sharp geometric patterns striving to achieve a goal manifesting progressive education.
Sharpness and precision symbolize clarity of thought, guiding a focused mind with self confidence,
to seek fresh avenues in all directions.
