Energy Week 2020
World Energy Week 2020 was scheduled to be hosted in Beirut in October.
In light of this event, the Lebanese Centre For Energy Conservation (LCEC) http://www.lcec.org.lb/ wanted to re-develop the visual identity of Beirut World Energy Week 2020.
Every year, the host country creates a logo to celebrate this event. The original WEC logo remains the same in every adaptation but the country’s logo changes. This logo usually reflects the country’s image by using an iconic figure or a historic landmark.
An uplift or a different approach?
The LCEC already had a logo for the event, but it didn’t convey the message they wanted to send about Lebanese creativity. This is where Origin came in.
For inspiration, we started by researching old logos created for this event by other host countries. Our team came up with two different approaches for this task.
The first approach: An uplift
The first approach was more or less the safer option. We uplifted the original logo, design, and typography while maintaining the main element used in the visual, the Raouche Rocks.
The second approach: A daring & modern Beirut
The second design was a more modernistic approach, very different than the first option.
The second logo featured the Beirut skyline and 3 other landmarks with the word Beirut written in modern Arabic calligraphy and softly integrated within the design.
