The winning logo

I posted here some weeks ago the details of the logo-making competition in connection with the 150th foundation year of the Salesians of Don Bosco.

We have a winner!


Here is an excerpt from the ANS:

The creator of the graphic representation is Wiktorian Mikolajetz a Polish graphic artist who is living in Berlin. The logo was chosen by the special commission meeting on Monday 24 November with six others. The Rector Major and some members of his Council then selected from the short that of Mr Mikolajetz.

The logo was chosen for its modern and youthful design. The figure “150” made out of the faces of youngsters from every part of the world illustrates how the history of the Salesian Congregation until today has been possible because of them. Don Bosco, above, expresses his inspirational and charismatic role in what the Congregation has achieved and at the same time the prospect of holiness offered to Salesians and to the young.

Wiktorian Mikolajetz, 48 years of age – will visit the places of special Salesian interest in Spring 2009 and will spend a week working with the members of the Social Communication Department.
Congratulazioni!
