Norwegian Ink initiated The CitID Project in 2010.
CitID is an ambitious project aiming to gain global consciousness by giving a (type)face to every city worldwide; big or small, rich or poor, famous or infamous, well-known or unheard-of. And we want you to be a part of it!
Ever heard of Tegucicalpa? How about Sandnes or Brunswick? Probably not. Right now they’re just hard-to-pronounce foreign words that you will not remember. The fact is, they are all cities somewhere on our planet. Places you’re most likely never to visit. Through this project you will become aware of them, and maybe even remember their names; Here you get to meet them personally and visually, in an inspiring artistic context.
Our hope is that creatives from around the globe will make a logo or a visual interpretation of the city closest to their heart. The universal goal is that every city ultimately gets their own identity on CitID, and that both the city and it’s aesthetic contributor gets recognition through this library – a place where you come for visual inspiration and leave with more knowledge about the world we live in.
