Klaipeda is the third largest city in Lithuania with a long history, situated next to the Baltic Sea. Getting an inspiration from calligraphy we designed the whole anniversary visual identity system: slogan “Klaipeda - City of Good Winds”, logotype, promo and representational materials, Klaipeda historical panorama, kinetic spatial composition “Klaipeda. 1252-2012 Historic Pendulum” as well as an interactive composition which metaphorically was called “Birds Chirping”.
About "Klaipeda" logotype.
Merging the words “City”, “Wind”, “Calligraphy”, “Anniversary” we designed a logotype – an attractive, vivid, emotion-rich, freestyle calligraphically written and digitized “Klaipeda” name. The official Klaipeda City heraldry red/yellow color palette was used as the main Klaipeda 1252-2012 visual identity color.
Personally, we could compare it to jazz, with its continuous pulsation, rhythmic improvisation, expression, joy and a kind of freedom. We tried to find the proper balance between harmony, action and expressivity. It reflects optimistic emotions through attractiveness, visuality and style.
