Clear and easy to understand is of paramount importance for a logo. Therefore, my design is easy for people to understand that it is about the 30 anniversary of the psychology department. Also, there is a heart between the ‘PSY’ and ‘30’ so as to emphasize that it is about psychology.

Being the best in Asia, our department is undoubtedly the pioneer in exploring the Psychology of Chinese People, a field largely unknown to the west. Given so, I designed the logo in form of a Chinese stamp to remind us of the important mission our department is bearing.
What is more, the dragon in the logo not only echoes with the Year of the Dragon, it also signifies our cultural identity as the "龍的傳人", reminding us not to forget our distinctiveness when the world is dominated by Western Psychology.
As seen in the logo, the tail of the dragon is the symbol of Psychology, which is originated from the west. It implies that while being distinct, we should also learn from others and remain humble as always.
