Milan, June 10, 2010 – Wolda, the Worldwide Logo Design Annual, is proud to announce the winners of its 2009 edition: 192 logos,

selected from nearly 2000 entries from all over the world. The overall winner is the “Circus of Magazines” logo designed by Olivier

Courbet for the online magazine marketplace. In the student category Wolda Talent, Keo Pierron from Texas, USA was the overall

winner with the “Ponzu Sushi house” logo.

All the winning entries are displayed online at and will be published towards the end of September 2010 in the ‘09

annual, a substantial hard-bound volume of exceptional quality printed on SAPPI acclaimed papers by FONTEGRAFICA.

Wolda also launches its next edition – Wolda ‘10 – and continues to evolve and improve with a brand new judging process that

again breaks new ground: every participant has a say in deciding the winning entries!

The judging mechanism has changed, yet remains revolutionary in its concept. The winning logos will be selected by every

participating designer, using a dedicated part of the website that has been carefully designed to prevent bias. This way, the winning

logos will truly represent the thinking of the worldwide logo design community, given that all participants are themselves, by

definition, logo designers.

Subscription fee now only € 21 per logo! The set of outstanding logos selected by this process will be presented in a free online

showcase, creating an e-archive that tracks the evolution of tastes, styles and trends in global design, year after year. Starting with

Wolda ’10, Wolda will be online only, eliminating the cost of producing expensive printed annuals. This makes it possible to reduce

the entry fee to an extremely accessible rate, with the goal of increasing participation and allowing Wolda to become a truly faithful

representation of logo design excellence worldwide. Designers, studios, agencies and students worldwide are invited to participate

in Wolda ‘10, now open for entries.

Wolda is the high-profile graphic design award scheme that rewards the best logos and trademarks designed throughout

the world, creating an archive that tracks the evolution of tastes, styles and trends in global design, year after year.

Wolda is the only awards scheme in the world endorsed by more than 100 design associations and schools. Designers,

agencies, studios and students from all over the world are invited to enter.

A logo (Greek λογότυπος = logotypos) is a graphical element, (ideogram, symbol, emblem, icon, sign) that, together with its logotype (a uniquely set and arranged typeface) form a trademark or commercial brand. Typically, a logo’s design is for immediate recognition, inspiring trust, admiration, loyalty and an implied superiority. [1] The logo is one aspect of a company’s commercial brand, or economic entity, and its shapes, colors, fonts, and images usually are different from others in a similar market. Logos are also used to identify organizations and other non-commercial entities.
