The Temasek Polytechnic logo captures the spirit of Singapore, the Lion City. After 21 years, it has since been given a more contemporary look. Besides refreshing the overall image and complementing the new typeface, the transformation from a square to a round identity suggests the dynamic world of change. The circular identity signifies the fluidity and continuous process of learning, and its infinite possibilities. Likewise, the symbol also represents the polytechnic’s connectedness with all her stakeholders.
The composition consists of an open book for knowledge, a central "T" as a torch for enlightenment, glory and hope. It also represents a sword for righteousness. The ascending staircases represent multiple entry points into the Polytechnic as well as indicate that education is a life-long, continual process.
The logo also depicts a stylised picture of a lion face. The symmetrical layout indicates the sound foundation for the goals.
Red is the corporate colour which gives the logo the likeness of an authoritative seal thus providing it with an aura of distinction which is the hallmark of Temasek Polytechnic.
