Alpha Epsilon Omega Foundation held a logo competition in collaboration with Base Studio (basestudio.org) located in Yerevan, Armenia. We received over 35 amazing logo design concepts and with a deliberated decision selected Shushan Avchyan as the winner of our contest. Shushan received $500 for the prize of creating our beautiful and meaningful logo.
Dear AEO Foundation,
Growing up, I understood that it is not enough to provide a beautiful design for your information, your design has to be meaningful, remarkable, and illustrated, to stuck in the user’s mind. So, I found the profession which enables me to work with illustrations that can shorten any company’s mission or message through outstanding and remarkable icons, professionally chosen color sets that transfer the right information to the users with just a glance.
The Alpha Epsilon Omega Foundation gave me a chance to show my ability to dive deeper into the logo creation process and create a logo that would describe the core values and the path that the foundation has chosen. During the logo creation process, I have made some research about foundations and their activity. I have questioned my friends as well what they think about foundations that help Armenia to grow. Surprisingly the majority of my friends think that foundations helping Armenia are trying to change the whole culture and make Armenia a very western country, by helping to grow they inject ideas that are not very Armenian.
Having the chance to create the logo of AEOF and to break the stereotypes I decided to use origami style. As you know in modern usage, the word “origami” is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin. The goal is to transform a flat square sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. Modern origami practitioners generally discourage the use of cuts, glue, or markings on the paper. So AEOF encourages the changes without cutting, gluing, or destroying the original version of culture while creating something enormous and beautiful to be proud of.
The best way to make an impact is to donate to our foundation, or directly to any of our projects you feel passionate about.
