Recently the World JOTA-JOTI Team caught up with the 2014 logo design contest winner, Taufik Umar Prayoga from Indonesia. We asked him a few questions to learn more about his Scouting background and his logo design.
JOTA-JOTI Team Question: How does it feel to be the winning designer for the 2014 JOTA-JOTI logo?
Tufik Umar Prayoga Answer: It’s awesome, this is my third time to participate in the JOTA-JOTI Logo Contest.
Q: What does your family think about this great honour?
A: My family feels proud.
Q: How long have you been involved in Scouting?
A: I have been in Scouting since joining Cub Scouts (Siaga Scout) in 1994, 20 years ago!
Q: What are your favourite Scouting activities?
A: My favourite Scouting activities are mountaineering and woodcarving.

Q: What do you do outside of Scouting?
A: I’m a young entrepreneur of a mini online shop. I’m also a student of communication science, which is my degree major.
Q: What are your experiences in JOTA-JOTI?
A: Many experiences, mostly meeting and making many friends from all over the world
Q: What inspired you to enter the logo competition?
A: Inspired from emoticon that means happy/laugh/jolly. Scouting is a jolly game!
Q: What thoughts are behind your design?
A: I just want to communicate that Scouting is modern — connecting people. It is one of the best “Social Networks” well before Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Q: Any thoughts or comments for other Scouts around the world?
A: Let’s “create a better world” and “Salam Pramuka from Indonesia.”
Thank you Taufik for your time with us and for your great logo design. Let’s all plan to participate in JOTA-JOTI this October.
