Parents Association of the 9th elementary school of Corfu   (Corporate Identity)

The original concept for the design of the logo for the 9th Primary School Parents Association in Corfu was inspired by the birds: they fly and oversee, just like a Parents Association should do, figuratively speaking. In particular, the bird chosen was the Woodpigeon, which is a member of the Columbiformes order and the largest bird in the pigeon family. 

Woodpigeons are unique birds; they are clever and gifted by nature with an acute sense of danger. They have perfect eyesight, good hearing and a team spirit. One of their characteristics is that when the flock eats, certain members act as guards - and so they do in their perch. The above unique features have inspired the symbol for the Woodpigeon’s figure, whilst the symbol’s final shape takes after the Chinese puzzle (Tangram). The latter was incorporated in the design as its geometric shapes allude to school and learning. The white triangle under the neck symbolizes the Woodpigeon’s white spot that differentiates it from other pigeons of the same family.
