The Art of LOGO Design
From research to visual concepts, from thumbnail sketches to the client brief, from selecting and defining a colour scheme to developing a message. The final hand-illustrated image.
The art of logo design is unique to the client, the brand, the event; it’s about what the symbol says on its own or anchored with a wordmark.

ICCEES 2020 World Congress logo
Inspiration for the design
Di-Octo, the kinetic metal sculpture by American artist Anthony Howe, is the inspiration, with written permission, of the ICCEES World Congress logo designed by Jeff Poissant, RGD of Evolving Media.
The sculpture Di-Octo was donated to Concordia University by chancellor Jonathan Wener and his wife, Susan Wener on the occasion of Montreal’s 375th and Canada’s 150th anniversaries. It now stands at the corner of Mackay St. and de Maisonneuve Blvd. in downtown Montreal.
