The Story Behind The EEC Logo

The Environmental Emergencies Centre is a knowledge hub and a meeting point for experts working in environmental or humanitarian fields. The Centre invites representatives of governments, communities, private sector, international organizations and civil society to strengthen their knowledge and skills on how to prepare for, and respond to, environmental emergencies. The website offers guidance, trainings, case studies and insights on a wide variety of topics. On the EEC platform the user can find detailed mission reports, interactive online courses, information about key stakeholders working in the field of environment and emergencies, as well as a wealth of insights with the latest news, events and updates.

Since the EEC site contains a large variety of information and knowledge, how do you capture this breadth in a design?

The EEC colors all have a specific meaning, logic and coherence.

  • Blue = sky / water / wind
  • Green = soil / nature and
  • Yellow = sun / fire / drought

The EEC logo visualizes the idea of what the EEC provides and represents into one simple figure. In the EEC logo, the letter E as shown represents Environment and Emergencies. The letter C represents the Centre itself. The purpose of the website is to better prepare for, and respond to, environmental emergencies, captured in the shield icon. The EEC shield strives to protect populations and the environment from the adverse effects of environmental emergencies.
