The institutional identity of ITU, which is in compliance with World University standards and ITU’s current historic and cultural characteristics as well as its mission and vision, has been created at the end of a 3 stage process.


In the first stage, the logo with bee was kept, but the name of Istanbul Technical University which appears on the surrounding ellipse has been modified and colour tested, and the font to be used in institutional correspondence was selected. In the next stage, the main components of identity such as colour systems, the principles of using the logo, and letterhead groups were finalised. In the third stage, the institutional identity was supported with a shape of a honeycomb which is divided into six equal pieces in such a way that it is repeated infinitely. In this structure, triangles and honeycomb forms can be combined freely to create many similar forms and also different ones.
