we designed the visual
identity of daphne samaras, a greek-hungarian film director.
she was named after
daphne, an ancient greek mythological character. the short version of daphne’s
story is that apollo was crazily fell in love with her but she didn’t want to
be with him, so she became a bay tree. otherwise daphne means bay leaf in
we used a leaf form
for the logo but we wanted to reflect on her profession as well. we chose an
eye motif, because it reflects on the most important sense of a film director. these
two motifs have the same shape so we decided to use the combination of them.
this is how we got this unique symbol.
