Who we are:
The German association on digital health (VdigG) unites people and organisations who are interested in discussing and driving innovations in information technology that have the potential to improve human health and health care systems.
Our association name in German explained:
The current letter logo “VdigG” represents the V from German word for Association, the small dig from digital and again a big G for the German word for Health (Gesundheit) = VdigG.
Frankly speaking, this is even hard to pronounce for German tongues and not a highlight in SEO friendly findings. (for example, if you miss a letter, you might end up here: http://vdig.de/ instead of here: http://www.vdigg.de )
We kindly invite you to create a lettertype logo along with an iconic symbol that shows in an easy-to-grasp way who we are and what we strive for - and/or what we do.
The lettertype logo contains
icon + acronym + english
icon + acronym + german
Logo format: horizontal - icon left, right or centred above
ICON + VdigG + German association on digital health (explanatory tagline capitals or mixed, you decide)
ICON + VdigG + Verband digitale Gesundheit (explanatory tagline capitals or mixed, you decide)
