The Polish Football Association (PZPN – Polski Związek Piłki Nożnej) was founded in 1919. It is the governing body of Polish football and also responsible for the Polish national team. In 2012 all eyes are directed towards Poland and the Ukraine because of the UEFA European Football Championship, which of course the PZPN plays a big part in.

Recently the Polish Football Association introduced a new logo which was designed by Warsaw SaltPepper Brand Design. The new logo has kept all the previous elements (the eagle, the crown and the football), which have been modernised into a much more commercial mark. The eagle with a crown, along with the colour red, is an integral part of Poland and can also be found in their Coat of Arms. via brand new

Flavours of Podlasie

polish packaging identity Flavours of Podlasiepolish packaging identity1 Flavours of Podlasiepolish packaging identity2 Flavours of Podlasiepolish packaging identity3 Flavours of Podlasiepolish packaging identity5 Flavours of Podlasie

“The Podlasie Region is situated close to the eastern border of Poland. The region is popular with foreigners, who come here to see the last European primeval forest. It is also a tasty region offering its inhabitants and tourists real specialties of a long tradition: “sękacz”, “pierogi” and cheese from Korycin.
The project contains a conceptual solution for the packaging and its graphic identity. The essence of the project is creating a new brand ‘Flavours of Podlasie’ (integrating different local producers) and in terms of graphics – visual reference to the ornamentation style of the region. Particular groups of products are identified by distinct colour codes while the essential graphic theme is based on a typical pattern of double-warp fabrics from Podlasie Region. The idea may contribute to an increase in sales of Podlasie food which is famous for its good quality and ecological values as well as the region’s economic development and its promotion. Individual graphics are built by one module – inspired by rough, thick weave. The module is also a detail which appears in (a common for the whole packaging line) red tag ‘Flavours of Podlasie’.Primitive or even ‘pixel-like’ graphic identity, two-colour, colour inversion, oblong shape of packages, austere colour scheme and a frame (edging) which closes up the composition  (often in a package seal) is a direct reference to a double-wrap textile character.”

Visual identity
The purpose of the logo is to give UEFA EURO 2012 a personality of its own, with the visual identity to be applied across a range of promotional applications from tickets to web banners. The objective is to help promote the tournament one of the world’s biggest sporting events by providing an easily recognisable identity with a flavour of the host nations. The logo takes its visual lead from wycinanka, the traditional art of paper cutting practised in rural areas of Poland and Ukraine, as a tribute to the fauna and flora of the region.

EURO bloom
The bloom logo has a flower representing each of the co-host nations and a central ball symbolising the emotion and passion of the competition, while the stem denotes the structural aspect of the competition, UEFA and European football. Nature has inspired other features of the visual identity, with woodland green, sun yellow, aqua blue, sky blue and blackberry purple being the crucial tones of the palette of colours to figure in official tournament branding.

Uniting ethos
The event slogan, meanwhile, is Creating History Together’. The staging of the UEFA European Championship finals in Poland and Ukraine, a first for Central and Eastern Europe, will have a place in the history books, with everyone involved in UEFA EURO 2012 organisers, host countries, host cities, players and fans – contributing to another exciting chapter of European football.
