The official logo of The Forefront consists of two elements and two colors. However, it has been enhanced by the current staff to create a more modern feel, which appeals to the current generation of students.
A quill represents the writing profession. Its color, red, symbolizes courage and sacrifice.
A stem of laurel leaves signifies triumph. Its color, yellow, symbolizes the nobility of the writing profession.
The old logo has the quill and stem of laurel leaves forming a capital letter ‘F’, which stands for The Forefront. The current logo, on the other hand, still features a quill forming a capital letter ‘F’ but the stem of laurel leaves can be found behind the quill. The current logo gives more importance to the writing profession and signifies how triumph highlights the latter. The colors have also been made more vibrant to show a more active participation of the students in The Forefront’s cause.
