BTS-Vibe Proposed Logo for the Memory Project
Posted on 16 June 2021
By National Quincentennial Committee Secretariat
ARMY, chilax. ? This was one of the logo studies for the National Quincentennial Committee’s (NQC) National Memory Project Philippines (NMP). It has the element of the stiffed stylized baybayin [ka] for “kasaysayan” (history) superimposed on a square creating an imagery of a door, opening. It also bears the colors of the National Flag.
Launched last August 2020, NMP is the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines’ Library and Museums. Soon to include the catalogs of various local studies centers, museums, and local history research institutions in the country, NMP eases researchers’ burden on looking for Philippine historical sources. The NHCP will develop this site into a digital library so that people may enjoy the wealth of its historical and museum collections for free, in the name of pushing national and local historical research forward. It is also a fulfillment of the NHCP’s commitment to the Local Historical Committees Network’s National Action Plan 2019-2022 (a.k.a., The Baler Agenda). You may access it here https://nqc.gov.ph/en/memory-project/. This week, the NHCP Library announced that it now already opened to the general public at Kalaw St., Ermita, Manila. It is free but one has to check these guidelines before trooping to NHCP: https://bit.ly/3gDkP2Z.
The NHCP and the NQC chose the second proposal as the logo of the NMP, inspired by the 16th-century tattoo pattern of a Visayan warrior documented by the Boxer Codex. Nonetheless, the first proposal evokes profound meaning, too. The two studies were both designed by illustrator, Alvin D. Lorena, now the designer of the online content of the National Archives of the Philippines.
