CitID is a very cool project started by design firm Norwegian Ink of Oslo. Their concept is to have a logo for every single municipality on Earth as a means of helping each city gain a little bit of global recognition. They invite all creatives to visually represent a place that they love and showcase it to the world. It is a great global community project focused on increasing understanding and celebrating uniqueness of place. It’s fun to look at their online gallery and see the variety of styles and ideas represented (there can obviously be multiples for a particular city). And as they say on their site “come for visual inspiration and leave with more knowledge about the world we live in.” I know I had never heard of Tashkent, Uzbekistan before I visited their site… it worked!
So far they have logos for at least one city on each continent but not every country – and the last time I checked there were no submissions for Canada yet. I’d love to see what people could come up with for the Queen City, so if you do submit a design, drop us a line and let us know!
Have a great weekend!
