Design Variations on IYC Motto

Activity by Fabienne Meyers   |   added on Sep 15, 2010   |   International Official_iyc_logo

Sponsor(s): IUPAC

“Chemistry—our life, our future” is the IYC motto. A pattern made of 40 translations has been arranged to help with various presentation projects. Here it is for you to use!

“Chemistry—our life, our future” is the IYC motto. Its message is one of hope, complexity, and responsibility and is a call for everyone to engage in some way in IYC 2011 activities.

The motto has been translated into 40 languages and arranged to create an intriguing design that is now available to everyone. So, use your imagination! The pattern can be repeated and used as a wallpaper or watermark on posters and displays; see examples in the pdf attached (here on the right) and access the resources page to download the tiff file.

Share your ideas and tell us how you will use it (below)!

Have fun!
Topic: iyc motto Audience: designers, creative minds
