The University of Media, Arts and Communication (UniMAC) officially unveiled its logo on Monday, December 19, 2022, at its North Dzorwulu Campus in Accra.
UniMAC is a public university established by an Act of Parliament, Act 1059 of 2020. This merged the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ), the Ghana Institute of Languages (GIL), and the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI) into a single public university.
The logo was uniquely designed with three colors; burgundy which connotes passion, excitement, and confidence; mustard brown, representing reliability, support, and authenticity and prussian blue which stands for trust, relevance and authority.
Designed by Mr. Noel Nutsugah, an assistant lecturer at UniMAC-GIJ, the logo contains three distinct Adinkra symbols to demonstrate African values and culture. The “Nkonsonkonson” is a symbol of unity and human relations, the “Dame-Dame” signifies intelligence and integrity and the “Akok) nan” represents nurturing/training and discipline.
In his address at the function, Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Kwamena Kwansah-Aidoo mentioned that the unveiling of the logo ushers in a new era of a university with a rich history from different perspectives.
“Our old logos did a great job for our beginnings, but the time has come to move on. We have developed a comprehensive logo which is reflective of a brand that is more dynamic, solid, and symbolizes the vibrancy of the future we aspire to, as a unique University”, he noted.
