Symbol for European Bank for Reconstruction & Development.
Client EBRD Paris/London. Winner of international competition to design a symbol that embraced the coming together of East & West when the Berlin Wall and communism fell in 1989 and to confront costs of environmental issues. The bank was the initiative of France and the UK to finance and assist redevelopment in Eastern Europe with contributions from all countries so the symbol had to also have a global component.

The symbol was designed on a serviette in a cafe and the original was presented in green. However President François Mitterrand and Prime Minister John Major requested change to blue found in the French and British flags.
