Logo Design

There are two key strands that run through our DNA and have been a core part of our 16 year old history – Global Horizons and Connecting the Dots. Our work with our clients enables us to look at the entire value chains across multiple industries in scores of countries. This gives us a unique view into the opportunities from a global lens and lead our clients to expand their horizons in competitive and profitable ways. The seven dots represent the seed of life in the cosmos of creativity and ideas. Given our work across multiple dimensions looking into the future, we have a unique vantage point to connect the dots to new insights, new investment areas, new customers and partners, and new roadmaps that lead to tangible successful outcomes. The Chetan Sharma Consulting logo melds the two notions of global horizons and connecting the dots across the vast universe of possibilities – that drive us on a daily basis and conveys our work in the Connected Intelligence Era.
