NR2207 / COP15 Copenhagen / United Nations

Logo and visual identity for the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009. The logo symbolises the blue planet. A network of lines - one for each nation in the UN - make up a complex structure heading towards unrest or balance. The logo was chosen from hundreds of proposals in an open competition. The jury: The winning proposal is a striking and at the same time both simple and complex symbol. Simple because the symbol is a stylized globe. Complex because the visual expression allows for a host of interpretations.
