Das Buro

Being born and raised in Zeeland, it was an enormous honor when we were asked to design the visual identity of the Province of Zeeland. All the greater was the astonishment about the public anger that flared up after the announcement of the predecessor of the current logo. A version without the Zeeland lion. Thousands of proud Zeelanders made themselves heard when the lion was ‘stolen’ from the logo. The provincial government withdrew the logo and after a multiple choice poll the current logo with lion was chosen. The storm has subsided again and luckily we were able to continue with our lives.
