Vinkovci Vukovar

Supported by Croatian Ministry of Tourism, two cities in Croatia, Vinkovci and Vukovar, hosted a number of workshops and lectures for tourist guides and experts in heritage interpretation and I had a privilege to design a visual identity for the event.

Gotta say, this project was also a very interesting exploration platform for me. For instance: I learned that the ceramic bowl pictured here, known by name Orion was found 40 years ago at archeological site in Vinkovci and being 4.500 years old (!) it’s considered to be the very first known calendar in Europe. It contains symbols for each season so we based the visual identity on three symbols that stand for autumn because the event was held in November. We also followed the same logic in terms of colours, Orion is black, with light brown symbols carved into clay.
