The Smiling Asterisk

Cultural diversity is not decreed, it springs up as the little asterisks that come in the shape of the man-asterisk-star: the symbol I have designed.
The asterisk is a symbol in the shape of star used to distinguish peculiarity, to attract people's attention. Every asterisk has his particular typographic shape and dimension. In the same way every culture has his peculiarity, his distinctiveness, but all of them can interact in creative and constructive way representing something great: the smiling man in the shape.
The man is smiling and has open arms in an attitude of welcome and kindness, and every asterisk, every culture, contribute to the armony and consonance, as the matching colours. It is a positive and optimist symbol.
