Here is the logo design for Alberese Archaeological Project, an association of archeologists that, since 2009, has led the excavations of the two Roman sites Spolverino and Scoglietto, located inside the Maremma’s Natural Park (Parco Naturale della Maremma), wild soul of Tuscany, Italy.
From the beginning, the idea was to use at least one of the excavation findings to inspire the logo. The decision choosen was to use a couple of lucerne, votive lamps made of terracotta with antropomorphic decorations, as a guide for a concept sketch on paper. The whole piece was scanned and set as the background in a vector editing software as Adobe Illustrator, where the final version of the logo (after few variations) was made. The vectorized logo was imported in a raster graphics editor program as Gimp or Photoshop to create the illustration poster (you can check it out in our porfolio).
Dirt, mud and ancient terracotta: you can almost smell the dust of the past.
