This is my pitch for a logo for a creative festival happening in May next year. We hope to bring together artists, musicians, writers, engineers and scientists and share experiences and get a fresh perspective on how to improve the world around us. Please look into this event you're interested in joining us! (rotr.in - still in BETA stage)
About the design, I tried to incorporate the essence of human knowledge and bring it together. The telescope for example relates not only to the astronomers among us but also the dreamer within our own selves, always looking toward the future. The gears symbolizes how all of this comes together through hard work and commitment. The microscope represents introspect and how the small things can come together and make a significant whole. The pencils and the paintbrush depict the roles of fine art and literature in inspiring minds and bringing together vastly different ideas. The Latin script translates to 'Find your direction', which is signified by the compass. Without direction and purpose, knowledge has little or no value.
Do let me know what you think :)
