The Dublin Institute of Technology logo retains familiar links with Dublin: The symbolic three castles, a symbol of the City of Dublin, have been modified and updated and appear as three points of a six pointed crystal shape representing the present six faculties that comprise Dublin Institute of Technology. Two tones of blue long associated with the city of Dublin, are used within the shield device. These two parts of the shield are both separated and joined simultaneously by a golden yellow wavy line, representative of the River Liffey which flows through the city. Whereas the shield is the focal point of the logotype, this has been accompanied by an Irish and English version of the Institute’s name. The typeface Trajan, lends a classical and timeless feel to the logo.
