Changchun City Symbol

A competition entry for the design of a new symbol to represent Changchun City, in Northern China.

The symbol is a representation of the Sika deer; historically a graceful, beautiful, strong treasure of the city, filled with positive meaning in Chinese culture. It also combines characteristics of both nature and technology. - Changchun is a city known for both its green forests and breath-taking nature, but also its technological advancements: the automotive and film industries, its universities, its research and scientific advancements. So, this city icon aims to balance these two aspects, with growing 'plant-like' antlers, and strong geometric parallel lines.
