Designs for a Cooler Planet⁣

Visual Identity by Milja Komulainen and Olga Elliot Schou⁣

The visual identity for this year’s Designs for A Cooler Planet exhibition is inspired by sports aesthetics. The identity combines the excitement and drive of the sports world with community efforts to make the world a better place. It highlights the UN sustainable development goals and celebrates the work of the students and researchers of the Aalto community. The identity was applied to the wayfinding and the printed and digital communication of the event.⁣
