How our logo was designed


We have Steve Shevell to thank for designing our logo. 

The words "INTERNATIONAL" and "COLOUR" are in fact drawn in the same colour; whilst the words "VISION" and "SOCIETY" are drawn in a second colour.  Adding the stripes induces a colour shift as a result of cortical receptive field organization (Monnier & Shevell, Nature Neuroscience, 2003).

To remove the inducing pattern of stripes, simply hover your cursor over the logo below.  The actual colours the letters are drawn in do not change when you do this.
