International Men’s Day: The Awareness, Significance, Challenges, and Logo Design Proposal
International Men's Day allows people to recognize and honor men in their lives. This annual event is held on November 19 to honor men's socioeconomic achievements, cultural, and political. Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh, a history professor at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago found International Men's Day in 1999. However, it is more than just a celebration of men's positive contributions to society; it is also a campaign to promote gender equality. The challenge today is how to promote the message through effective media so that it can reach all organizations and all levels of society. A logo as a symbol of an organization should reflect the goals and message of the group. Through the media of the logo, the meaning of International Men's Day is expected to be easily disseminated. The message of IMD 2021 is “Better relations between men and women”.
