This identity is an amalgamation of the fluid as well as the structured.”

Presenting, the newly minted SONA logo:
The letters ‘S’ and ‘O’ form the globe, the ‘N’ and ‘A’ form the core of the planet.The abstract components that form the core of their business are represented by 5 teeth, one for each continent. With geometric precision, the layers within, bring texture and vibrancy of the work culture. The infinite, connected symbol represents positivity of intent, innovation and the continuous endeavour to grow.SONA stands for that raw purity of core manufacturing, turning nature into a manmade wonder. The company consciously chose to bring forth their prudence in the identity by using a singular binary black and white combination.Overall, the SONA logo creates an aspirational form symbolising the richness of the company’s past, the reality of their present, and inspiration for the future.
