The International Ombudsman Institute is the only global organization for the cooperation of more than 182 independent Ombudsman institutions worldwide that monitor and control public administration at the national, regional and local level. It is committed to promoting the Ombudsman concept by facilitating the exchange of information and experiences between Ombudsman institutions across the globe.
Therefore, the target group primarily comprises IOI members, state & government representatives, prospective members as well as representatives of various international organizations. Hence, the logo should be designed in a classical and sophisticated manner.
As the IOI website has recently been renewed, the logo should be customized to it. The design of the website, as well as further information regarding the IOI can be accessed under the following link: http://www.theioi.org/the-i-o-i
In 2018, The International Ombudsman Institute will celebrate its 40th anniversary. Therefore, the number “40” should be incorporated in the logo which will be used throughout the year 2018. Afterwards, it should be possible to remove the number, without compromising the quality and the aesthetic of the logo.
