The 2018 edition of the “Nexus. Relationships Between Architecture and Mathematics” international conference on architecture and mathematics will include a competition for the logo. The conference logo will appear on the website, on all printed announcements and posters concerning the conference, and on all conference material. A special webpage on the conference website will provide space for the winning designer to explain the concept and process behind the creation of the logo. The logo will also appear on the cover of a future issue of the Nexus Network Journal. There is no monetary prize for the winning logo but the designer will receive credit whenever the logo appears.
The winning logo will be selected by the members of the Scientific Committee of the conference and will also appear on the covers of the publications containing the abstracts and posters and the Ph.D. Day presentations.
The logo should capture the “nexus” of architecture and mathematics, the interdisciplinary subject of the Nexus conferences. References to the conference venue in the city of Pisa are also appreciated.
Designers should remember that the logo design should be meaningful at a variety of scales, from full-size to thumbnail, and that it will be used on the cover of Conference Abstracts Volume and will appear online as well. Scaling the image up and down during the design phase will help the designer be sure that the logo is readable in all formats
