:THUMBPRINT

06.27.10

Competition Brief: Create the official logo for the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts – UNESCO’s flagship program for supporting craft producers.

I was inspired by the uniqueness of the talents of each individual craft producer.  To me the common thread between each piece of artwork is the ‘signature’ that the individual artist places on his or her work. My logo attempts to abstractly capture the thumbprint of the artist.  Paired with a modern typeface the textile-like thumbprint speaks to both innovation and tradition.
