  • The Danish Design Prize 2008/09

    The logo ‘Voksevaerk’ awarded The Danish Design Prize

    “The Logo ‘Voksevaerk’ for Copenhagen Natureschools is a very successful and vibrant graphic design. The design simultaneously expresses openness and structured form, which provides flexibility of usage in a wide range contexts without compromising on recognizability. The logo appears more like a pattern than the classic stand-alone icon. The fractal-like pattern lets the logo blend naturally into its surroundings, where it may either stand alone or appear as shapes, endlessly growing and repeating themselves”.
