It was a great honor for us to design The Russian Heritage Foundation logo. The main task was to show the whole bouquet of Russian heritage that is deeply rooted in history.
According to the task that we received from our client, we came up with 3 ideas. You have probably heard that the most genius ideas, logos, designs came up the fastest. This is what happened here.
At no surprise, the first one was picked. The whole idea runs around an old traditional Russian symbol – Zhar Ptica (The Firebird or The Phoenix). In Slavic mythology and folklore, the Firebird is a magical and prophetic glowing or burning bird from a faraway land, which is both a blessing and a harbinger of doom to its captor. The Firebird is described as a large bird with majestic plumage that glows brightly emitting red, orange, and yellow light, like a bonfire that is just past the turbulent flame.
Here are all 3 mockups of the Russian Heritage Foundation logo:
