Vision PDX was a project by the city of Portland, Ore. to engage community members in creating a 20-year vision for the city. It has now morphed into Vision Into Action. The logo is based on Portlandia, the huge statue in front of Michael Graves' Portland Building. In the logo she is reaching down to the people while holding aloft the ideals of the long-range vision. Portlandia trivia: it is the second-largest hammered-copper sculpture in the U.S. (after the statue of liberty). I designed this logo while at Staccato Design.
