I really enjoyed to participate in the contest of The American Autism Center for their new logo. This is a center that treats kids with Autism with every treatment they need under one roof, from occupational therapy, speech therapy, a special learning school, pharmacy, nurses, diagnostician, dietician, hyperbaric therapy. Instead of describing what I had in mind when I designed that logo, I rather quote the feedback received from the contest holder, who wrote „I see a child, a developing and colorful brain, and a tree of life which represents life and hope.” Maybe to explain a bit more, puzzles are quite commonly used to graphically represent autism, that’s why I created a puzzle-tree. Puzzles reflects the mystery and complexity of the autism spectrum. Also colors are used on purpose, as these 4 colors are used in The Autism Awareness Ribbon, and they represent the diversity of the people and families living with the condition.
