Logo for Yele Pages. How to design Logo for Yele_Page?

A logo is more than an images and words, a good logo tells a story about your company or business or website--who you are, what you do and what you stand for. That's a lot to ask of one piece of art, which is why it's important that you take the time to do it right.
For my Pages, I just want to make a simple, modern  one and also it would be outstanding.
So that, you will see a few step below, that showing the process of designing my logo

The greenest building in Ho Chi Minh city

The first LEED certified-green office building

   President Place, a new office building in the city centre, is Ho Chi Minh City’s greenest project. why is GREEN? we will figure out.
   The building is located on Nguyen Du Street in District 1, near the Reunification Palace   ( Independent Palace) and the city's law court. 

   Sapphire, the building’s developer, set out to create the greenest building in the city, and their effort has paid off in the form of a LEED Gold certification. LEED is a system designed by the US Green Building Council to determine how environmentally friendly buildings are. President Place is the first building in the city to receive this status.
   Philip Cluer, the leasing coordinator at President Place, explained that LEED “is about sustainable use of construction materials, for example trying to source as much material locally as possible.” Nearly everything used to construct the building was made in Vietnam, including the custom steel cladding.

What Does Sustainable Design Sound Like?

Design and architectural professionals who are dedicated to sustainable design demonstrate concern for health and safety, productivity, environmental responsibility and optimal usability.

The tightly woven relationship between acoustics and sustainable design has become increasingly evident in recent years. As design and architecture professionals strive to incorporate sustainability into their projects, there is a tremendous need for accurate, reliable information. Recognizing the significance of sustainable design and the integral role of acoustics, we must embrace the movement and encourage others to do the same.

At the heart of sustainable design and acoustics are fundamental concerns for environmental impact, profitability and health and safety. Accounting for acoustic conditions can greatly increase the overall comfort level of a space, while poor acoustics can result in dangerous, unhealthy environments. Acoustics can be applied to almost every design project with obvious benefits, including functionality. Building and design professionals can apply acoustic solutions to most projects with ease and the selection of effective, recycled acoustic products has never been better. Considering acoustics is paramount to the profitability and overall integrity of numerous industries and to the collective health and safety of those who live, work and play within the spaces created by building and design professionals.

Designing Workspaces for Higher Productivity

Working place being designed as an open_office
When Jennifer Stanton graduated from Arizona State University's College of Business and entered the professional world, she didn't expect a corner office with her name on the door. She didn't even expect a door. Stanton, a 26-year-old planning analyst, spends a chunk of her day churning through data for a large technology company from her cubicle. She represents the growing number of employees asked to work in an open-office environment, rather than in a traditional, four-walled office.
   "I think fewer people are expecting offices these days," says Stanton. "Plenty of companies are using cubicles to avoid obvious professional hierarchies. Some companies use the open-office plan to support a business philosophy that encourages communication and a collaborative environment. "It's nice to have an office that literally encourages an open-door policy," she continues. "The only thing that I can complain about is constantly having to tune out the conversations around me in order to concentrate."
  She's not alone.

High-rise ofice building - Some design considerations.

Office facade in design process

High-rise office buildings, which are developed as a response to population growth, rapid urbanization and economic cycles, are indispensable for a metropolitan city development. 
    A study in the economic height of modern office buildings: “Given the high land values in central business sections of our leading cities, the skyscraper is not only the most efficient, but the only economic utilization of certain strategic plots. An exhaustive investigation… has conclusively demonstrated that the factors making for diminishing returns
in the intensive development of such plots are more than offset by the
factors making for increasing returns…” (Klaber, 1930).
