Escola Prática de Polícia

Logo designed for the Police Training School in Portugal.

This involved some research work. I was looking into illustrating the school values. Ended up with the following elements and their respective meaning:

  • Shield – defense weapon;
  • Book – culture;
  • Laurel twigs – intellectual merit;
  • Star – police;
  • Sword – power of knowledge;
  • Ribbon – name of the institution.

I prepared two different versions – with and without the shield. Did several colour and symbol/typography arrangement tests too.
