About the Global Down Syndrome Foundation Logo

The Global Down Syndrome LogoThe Global Down Syndrome Foundation logo is a wonderful synthesis of beauty and substance.  We wanted to create something that was elegant and fashionable but something that also had a deeper meaning associated with Down syndrome.

The three bird-like elements in the design are actually stylized chromosomes. This is particularly appropriate given that Down syndrome occurs when an individual is born with three copies of the 21st chromosome instead of two.  The darker shaded element represents the extra chromosome.

The result is a fabulous logo that succeeds in capturing the genetic origin of Down syndrome while simultaneously emphasizing the beauty of people with Down syndrome.

Our logo is used in all of our branding and with all of our programs.  It is trademarked by the Global Down Syndrome Foundation.
