Austria:Stamp on Trademark Austria

Trademark Austria is an idea competition in the form of a media series to which 20 high-\"\"profile visual designers from or living in Austria have been invited. The occasion derives from the impression that the question of Austria’s identity is often unsolved or at least underexposed and that the currently widespread discussion of “Austria as a trademark” is not having much effect. The project plays on the ambiguity of the term, by linking the question of the identity of Austria and its representation to the format of a postage stamp. The results were presented in the Austrian newspaper “Die Presse” between 1 May and 11 September 2011 and assessed by an expert jury.The winning design in the idea competition mentioned at the beginning originates from Nik Thoenen, a Swiss graphic designer living in Vienna.
