Part of a larger project which was intended to apply design methodology to a community. In this case, the community was the neighboring town of Dunkirk, New York.
Influenced by the history of Dunkirk, NY, this logo was designed to pay homage to to the heritage of the community without being stuck in the past.
The lettering was based on humanist proportions but also pulls insperation from Dunkirk’s history of manufacturing. The imagery created by the top bar reflects the silhouettes of the town’s more well-known buildings.
