Logo Description

The concept primarily depicts the process of deriving medicines from nature represented by leaf, pestle and mortar.

The partial circle represents the rising sun which first happens in the North East. It is also a symbolic representation of source of knowledge and growth.

The leaf has a shape of rhinoceros horn within itself to subtly depict the locality. Assam is known for its one horn rhinos. Consequently, the identity portrays a unique connection of the institute located in northeast region – abundance of nature, rising sun and rhinoceros.

The lines at the bottom are in the form of an open book for knowledge and education.

The pharmacy symbol directly communicates the nature of the institute.

The Sanskrit motto, “Oushadhi: Sharmo Yachantwabhritaha” means “may the herbs, being brought, extend well-being” harmonizing with the visual design.

The design is kept simple to have a high recall value and at the same time being unique and different from rest of the NIPER institutes.
