New Work: Two Heavens Creation | New at Pentagram | Pentagram
Justus Oehler and his team in Pentagram’s Berlin office have designed the logo for Two Heavens Creation, a new Austrian-Chinese partnership in the field of culture, entertainment and the performing arts. The organization’s mission is to mutually promote and further strengthen cultural and creative relations between the Republic of Austria and the People’s Republic of China. The objective is to establish a long-term cooperation between the two countries for the purpose of transferring first-class Chinese productions to Austria and Europe and top Austrian productions to China and Asia.
The two letters “H” stand for the two heavens—China and Austria—and come together to form a bridge, which also reads as a “C” for creation. The logo is designed to appeal to both a European and a Chinese audience, hence the theatrical “sunburst” colour gradation from red (both Austria and China have red in their flags) to yellow.
