"Good journalism is one of the hallmarks of civilised society. Brave journalism keeps freedom alive. Inquiring journalism is essential in a flourishing democracy. And thoughtful, open-minded journalism helps bind people of different outlooks together."
For the European Press Prize we designed a visual identity that reflects these ideologies and celebrates the diversity of languages and cultures within Europe.
Celebrating the diversity of languages and cultures within Europe.
The new visual identity celebrates the cultural diversity in Europe, and emphasises on the importance of free press as a cornerstone of democracy. By taking distinctive characters used in the many different European languages and combining these, a new unique and recognisable visual language emerges.
