Thor Heyerdahl 100th Birthday Logo Competition
2013 Nov 20
In 2014 activities and exhibitions to commemorate the 100th birthday of Thor Heyerdahl - 1914 to 2014 - will be organised by the Kon-Tiki Museum and The Thor Heyerdahl Institute, both together and seperately. The logo competition is one of the activities. The logo will act as the official logo.
The deadline for the logo competition was November 1st 2013. The Thor Heyerdahl Institute received more than 89 contributions from all over the world, including USA, UK, Spain, Malaysia, Azebadijan, Australia, Latvia and Germany. The winner is Daniel Brox Nordmo. Daniel will receive the first prize of 10,000 NKR.
According to the Jury, 'The winning entry is clearly without confusing elements. The logo is elegant and it accentuates Thor Heyerdahl's sea-going expeditions,using the clear sail. With his prehistoric expeditions he showed that early humans mastered sailing before the saddle and wheel'. The Jury members [left to right] were: Cory Grier, Art director, Artworx; Olav Heyerdahl Jr, grandson of Thor Heyerdahl; Erling Storm, board member of The Thor Heyerdahl Institute; Project Manager Tonje Renate Rogstad Husa, The Thor Heyerdahl Institute; and Marketing and Communication Manager Halfdan Tangen Jr, The Kon-Tiki Museum.
We look forward to the activities and exhibitions in 2014 to commemorate the 100th birthday of Thor Heyerdahl.
