this invitation (below) for a crowdsource project (you know the ones: lots of fun, no money) arrived in my mailbox a few weeks back and stayed there until last week when i decided to give it a (quick) shot, this is basically the (first) idea i came up with…

the ‘stars’ that have somehow contributed to the city and made it what it is today…

CitID is a ambitious community project where designers world wide are invited to design a logo for their city. We are aiming to collect a unique set of inspiring logos/artworks, displaying the various styles and trends in contemporary logo design all over the world. We hope to include as many cities in the world as possible.

it’s a nice, simple idea this project but, to be honest, a little disappointing to see now the site has gone live, that there aren’t many entries which could really seriously be called logos or identities in my opinion…

still i would be curious to hear from anyone who has an opinion about my own entry… just to be clear this is a presentation of the central idea (using the stars i.e. local people to represent the city’s identity and the star symbol to replace the letters ‘ster’) and not really a finished logo design…

doing that seriously would take a lot of time (and money), which this ‘for fun’ project doesn’t really justify in my mind…

the complete set of variations i made can be seen on the site (just look for the one with the big red star, or click here), i will also upload them later to ‘me stuff’…

by the way, i have already found one mistake i made before someone else spots it: anne frank actually died at ‘bergen belsen’ not ‘auschwitz’… and the hotel chet baker fell to his death from wasn’t 3 star, it just sounded better in the text (okay that’s two things)
