The magazine Conde Nast Traveller approached a few designers asking them to “rebrand” a country. The decision of what country to rebrand was up the designer. Paula Scher chose Slovenia, designing the logo below, among others. I found the logo funny and clever because it takes the ubiquitously known boot of Italy and makes Slovenian an easily memorable appendage. A common sore point for both Slovenes and Slovaks is how common it is for no one, but the inhabitants of the two countries to be unable to tell the two apart.
More logos from the project can be found here.
