Redesigning Identification System of Egypt’s Governorates
The aim of this project is to create a representative unified identification system for the governorates of Egypt. The current identification system is unrepresentative and unified; the logos suffer from conceptual problems as well as graphical implementation problems. Therefore a new system had to be designed. Each governorate has been well researched in order to elicit its core elements and design a representative logo that would give it a discern identity and make people proud that they are part of it. The governorates have been divided into five main categories and were color coded accordingly. The main governorates have been represented in red, in reference to the color of the nation identity. The Agricultural governorates in green. Port governorates category is represented in dark blue color to symbolize the stability and professionalism of the importing and exporting issues. Coastal Red Sea governorates in light blue color in reference to sea and nature. While the Special Identity governorates in a golden shade of yellow to symbolize their uniqueness. The outer shape of the logos depicts the pyramid, which is the significant element of Egypt as it represents its identity and heritage.
