About the Logo

“When we were coming up with a logo for the revamped TPJF, we wanted to have a touch of the old journal feel to it being digitized. Hence, the use of the old font from previous journal covers was used together with the three fishes, which symbolizes the three major islands in the Philippines - Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Color schemes were obtained from the colors of the water, and the box-type graphic fish form shows off a modern, digital design.” (Verinna Charisse Mangonon, logo designer)
