Typhlological Museum Zagreb
The Typhlological Museum in Zagreb is one of the rare museums in Europe which is dedicated to the problems of disabled people, especially those of the visually impaired. The name of the museum stems from Greek words “typhlos“ (blind) and “logos“ (speech).
The Museum aims to work as a corrective mechanism in society by supporting the community to rectify negative conceptions about the disabled. The logo includes both the Latin script and Braille to point to the equality of the blind and visually impaired in society.
Both the poster and publication cover designs refer to the Amsler grid which is a grid of horizontal and vertical lines used to monitor a person’s central visual field. It is a diagnostic tool that aids in the detection of visual disturbances caused by changes in the retina. In the test, the person looks with each eye separately at the small dot in the center of the grid. Patients with macular disease may see wavy lines or some lines may be missing.
The newly founded company produces metal parts of all sizes, which are later incorporated into big machine assemblies. Their goal is to produce everything – from a needle to a locomotive. The main method of production they do is welding, so they wanted to have a logo which is connected to electrodes, sparks and welding.
