SACRED CITY MESSOLONGHI
Logo design for the Municipality of Messolonghi
Logo design for the Municipality of Messolonghi and the Committee “Holy City of Messolonghi Revolution Self-Sacrifice” was our biggest challenge. It was created wanting to declare the anniversary of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the proclamation of the Greek Revolution and the events of honor and memory in the year 2021.
The Holy City of Messolonghi, organizes every year the established “Exodus Feasts”. The aim is to honor its heroes and emphasize the role of Messolonghi in the cause of Greek independence. These are planned and take place throughout the year 2021 in municipal districts of the Municipality.
We proudly designed the logo, which perfectly expresses the meaning and role of Messolonghi in the cause of Greek independence. A dynamic logo that balances between traditional and modern graphic design. A logo that captures the greatness of Greece and the Greek Revolution. At the same time, it marks the contribution of the Exodites in the struggle for Freedom and Greek independence.
Specifically, the Messolonghi Gate was an inspiration for us and could not be omitted since it is the trademark of the city. The key number “21” connects the dates 1821 and 2021 where they are written on the edges of the Gate to mark the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution. Part of the wavy Greek flag with the Cross, which at its ends resembles the shape of a sword, is presented to further strengthen the signal. The colors range in dark blue and light blue to be even more reminiscent of the colors of the Greek flag.
