We are thrilled to reveal our new Dhaka Art Summit logo and identity designed and envisioned by G L Y P H! The inspiration for our logo stems from the notion where Bangladesh is seen as a "Land of Triangles." The shape appears in the landscape, textiles, architecture and many other mediums throughout the region.
