Design Concept

Designed by Mr. HO Chung Hang Vincent

(Staff and Graduate, Department of History )

 

 

 

Comprising of geometric patterns and four different colours, this logo unleashes the creativity and vitality of the Faculty of Social Sciences. The letters “SOSC” are the underlying fundament of the Faculty. The number “50” lying on the “S” and the “O” highlights the theme and is iconic. We keep the signature blue and green colours, which appeared on the current logo, so as to retain the cordial and harmonious image of the Faculty. The hazel gold-like colour reminds us that this is the year to celebrate the golden jubilee with faculty members, alumni and students. Adding the year of establishment on top of the logo is to accentuate the history of the Faculty, and recall the momentous journey that the Faculty has walked through. It is believed that there will be many more years to come.
