International Festival of Cultural Diversity Logo

My logo for the International Festival of Cultural Diversity is meant to celebrate the unity between many different cultures. Each strand of the “cultural braid” represents an individual heritage and by braiding those together we are able to create a stronger and more richly diverse bond. The braid is meant to be a symbol of unity and strength and touches on the many traditions of any given culture. Textiles, appearance, and even music are all made of intertwined and overlapping pieces. In designing this logo I wanted to show how each individual culture can come together to form a stronger relationship without compromising the individual characteristic of their own customs.
