Making of the Logo
Advancing community health for children requires a holistic approach, with all members of the community taking part. Inspired by the traditional wooden figures of Kenyan artisans, but with a modern silhouette, the community is framed by a circle of bright colors.
The intricacy of Kenyan beadwork truly inspires: thousands of tiny beads expertly crafted into bold necklaces. The same care is being taken to form innovative solutions to the maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health issues facing Kenya today.
The Beadwork logo will be printed on the conference bags.
This logo was created by Gwendolyn Stinger, independent graphic designer, and CORE Group staff.
