A Canberra-based design studio has released a stunning web design element.
It’s the web designer icon, which represents a website’s logo in a way that doesn’t look like a standard web design.
“The web designer’s icon has been around for a long time, so it’s nice to see it finally get some recognition in Canberra,” said Andrew Storrs, the project manager of web design studio The Web Design Company.
“It is just an essential element of Canberra’s modern design and it’s a very well-known icon that’s in use all over the world.”
So this is really nice to have it recognized.
“Mr Storars said the Canberra-made logo would be a great tribute to the city’s modern history and culture.”
When we made the decision to make the Canberra logo, we didn’t have a preconceived idea of what it was going to look like or how it would be used,” he said.”
There was no need to go and find the right artist to make it, we just thought, ‘let’s make it’.
“The team behind the Canberra web design company says they are proud of the design.
The Canberra logo has been used in Canberra, New South Wales and Victoria for more than 30 years.
The logo’s design was based on a classic design by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, known for his iconic red, white and blue palette.”
That was the basis of the logo,” Mr Storres said.
The graphic designer used a mix of vintage and contemporary elements to create the design, including red and white stripes, a red dot and white and red shapes.”
We took a little bit of the colour of the red dots to show that it was a bit more red in colour, but it wasn’t quite as saturated as the Mondrian logo,” he explained.”
A lot of it was based around colour, so we took that, mixed it in with some colour from the red and some colour of our own and it was all really very cool and interesting.
“Mr Pliszak said the design was a unique and powerful way to acknowledge the city and its history.”
I think it’s pretty important that we acknowledge the Canberra people, and the people who have worked here over the years,” he told ABC Radio Canberra.”
As much as it’s about recognising the history, it’s also about celebrating what’s going on in the world.
