Info Guide Design
Type of client: Wine Bar
Type of work: Logotype
Refugee.Info Greece commissioned us to design this year’s city guide for applicants asylum, refugees and stateless persons for Athens and Thessaloniki. Two catalogs for two cities with information about refugees in nine languages (Greek, English, French, Somali, Turkish, Ukrainian, Arabic, Farsi and Urdu). The first part of the project was about with the multilingual format and therefore the fonts we had to choose where to they respond to the spelling, the special characters and also its particularities of every language mainly for Arabic.
The Latin alphabet in texts and typography it had to be combined with Arabic and Cyrillic. It was also necessary to design a layout – system, that could really work having on every page information in nine languages and to receive all the necessary information. The second part was about a color palette we created and applied for each language.
That way, readers of the Guide could easily search and find the information they are looking for every time in the same color and in the same place of the page layout. Finally for the easy recognition of the Guide of each city we chose to color separate the cover that corresponded to each city. Creating the 2023-2024 edition of the Athens and Thessaloniki Guide was a project of cooperation between the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Greece, the Athens Coordination Center for Immigrant and Refugee Issues (ACCMR) and the Refugee.Info Greece (International Rescue Committee Hellas).
