Fachhochschule Vorarlberg"1"

The figurative basic idea, meaning the logo of the Vorarlbergs University, is to contrast the analog prints of the old world with new modern digital communication. Defined are just the design of grid, font, color climate and the analog subprint with
F-forms. Thereby the letters are directly painted on the printdisc and printed one
upon the other in soft red/green/blue colors. Circumstance to smaller formats
abstract compositions will be ensued. The designing follows the orders of regularity, clarity and simplicity. Designing aim is a retaining but willful esthetic in all applications.
