Amsterdam Logo for CitID

typografie, logo, CitID, Amsterdam, illustratie, Enkeling, 2010

This is a logo I made for the CitID project by Norwegian Ink. Artists from over the world were asked to represent their hometown. I decided not to adapt to the usual practical rules for a logo, but just go all out, usability be damned.
I made my logo in two layers, the underlaying layer is made out of Amsterdam landmarks and other assorted Amsterdam-related parts.
