About our Logo

The mark combines the Chinese character 人 meaning “person” and the exclamation point “!” motifs to express the surprises and discoveries to be found in diversity.
The silhouette resembles a ladder lottery, to signify serendipitous meetings or fortuitous encounters with worlds we could not imagine ourselves, and the idea that there are discoveries to be made at the end of the path we choose.
