Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Logo

Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Logo
Due to the color choice and the design imitating the gradient effect, the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association logo looks rather calm and peaceful. The deep and rather saturated shade of blue in combination with the white background conjures up the images of the placid ocean under the blue sky with white clouds.
The impression is only reinforced by the rounded angles of the letters. Even the implied motion suggested by the italicized glyphs does not manage to break the overall impression.
