CreoVate’s logo, a clock symbolizes moments of the time dimension. Emphasizing on the need to focus on this Fourth Dimension Dr. Bharadwaj said “A 3 Dimensional object begins to form a pattern, a story, a track & evolves into a character when seen over time called the FOURTH dimension. Organisations have life and their shift has to be seen against this dimension. This gap from ‘As-Is’ to ‘To-Be’ is what the 'fourth dimension' depicts”
