BRASÍLIA 50 ANOS | Logos :: 50 Years of Brasília by Antônio Danilo Moraes Barbosa

LOGOS: 50 years of Brasília

The logo was designed by architect and urban planner Antônio Danilo Moraes Barbosa, who works at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (Sedum). Morais lives in Brasília and is a former professor of architecture at the University of Brasília (UnB).

I like it a lot. Especially when it’s animated.

I like the cut-in accent on the “I” in Brasília:

The decision to use Brasília’s official colors was a good one.

But the best thing about the logo is how it focuses the spotlight on one of the lesser-sung notables (Pioneers, really) of Brasília’s urbanscape, artist Athos Bulcão, during this celebratory year.

Well done!

There were more than 400 entries for the logo from around Brazil.

The composition of the winning design refers to the curves of the works of architect Oscar Niemeyer, the design of urban planner Lucio Costa, and the famous tiles of the late, great, Athos Bulcão (1918-2008).
