This logo was designed for a branding competition for Zakynthos - Greece and it was held by the municipality of the island. The logo was one of the three chosen by the artistic jury. Regarding the design of the logo, the goal was to reflect the great history of the island as well as its exceptional physical environment. Thus I designed a font for the logo based on the mixed variety of fonts simultaneously used on printed mediums from around 1600 until now (public library of Zakynthos). The font also reflects the floating and multicultural character of the island. The two mirror -s- shape is a form massively used for centuries in the architecture of Zakynthos, applied to belfries, churches, rails, house entrances and windows. The three unequal circles were also used on top of triangle shapes for series of application like book covers, windows, pediments etc. The letters of the final logo represent the sea, the -s- shapes represent the land and the circles represent the sun, three elements strongly related with the culture of the habitants.
