NR2154 wins visual identity competition for the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009.
The logo symbolises the blue planet. A network of lines – one for each nation in the UN – make up a complex structure heading towards unrest or balance.
The logo was chosen from hundreds of proposals in an open competition.
The jury: The winning proposal is a striking and at the same time both simple and complex symbol. Simple because the symbol is a stylized globe. Complex because the visual expression allows for a host of interpretations.
