GO! 2025 International Logo, Brand & Visual Identity Contest now is over!
GO! 2025 International Logo, Brand & Visual Identity Contest: EGTC GO, European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation, published an international competition for the selection of the logo and graphic image of the European Capital of Culture GO! 2025.
The European Capital of Culture is a project of the European Commission that has taken place every year since 1985 and involves two cities from two states of the European Union selected by an independent jury within national competitions.
The theme (slogan) of the European Capital of Culture 2025 is GO! Borderless, which embodies the desire to create a city without borders. Nova Gorica and Gorizia overcoming together all kinds of "borders": two cities divided by the wars of the twentieth century, united by close collaboration and friendship, have set themselves an ambitious goal: to become the European Capital of Cross-border Culture.
The object of this Competition is the study and creation of a new logo / representative brand that clearly summarises the theme inspiring the event, and which serves as a launching platform and distinctive sign for all activities of the European Capital of Culture project with particular regard to identity and communication.
The key words of reference for the design of the logo / brand and the visual identity are boundlessness, creativity, passion, collaboration, community, future. The logo / brand must express coexistence, boundlessness, community. The chromatic component, the palette must include the turquoise as the natural and peculiar characteristic colour of the Soča River.
The selected proposal will become the hallmark of the European Capital of Culture and the symbol of the cultural integration of our space without borders.
