Design Concept

The logo concept is inspired by the riddle of the “little red house with no doors and no windows and a star inside”.


Through the sharing of a piece of fruit, the little boy came to discover the treasure he had been searching for - the star inside the apple.


This story and star with its seedpods is the symbol for many of the aspects of CHAT that members seek out and value in their coming together. In the star, you find the safe haven, the centre, the heart of health, nurture, sharing. It also has meaning for CHAT’s primary focus: children. The seedpods are as a nursery, or new beginnings.


The apple star is consistent with CHAT’s educational objectives, as well as, the association with Tasmania, the “Apple Isle”. And of course, the apple, which is well recognized as a symbol of health, wisdom, understanding, and inspiration.


We would like to thank the generous Jacqui Porch of Marque'd for her generous work on our fabulous new logo. You can find more on Marque'd on facebook.  You can also contact Jacqui at or on 0409 556 796.


We absolutely love the fresh and modern look of our new logo, and hope you do too!
