It’s hardly the most inspiring of logos (Bucuresti written in an off the shelf font with some optimistic flower-like things spurting from the final i), but it’s a logo all the same.
But it got us thinking: what’s the point of a logo if you keep it to yourself? Surely this logo should be all over the city: it should be on every bus, tram, metro, envelope, letterhead and civil servant’s t-shirt. Instead, we have so far seen it in one place: on a huge banner covering what will be the much-vaunted ghiseul unic* on B-dul Kogalniceanu.
Anybody seen it elsewhere?
*Ghiseul unic (Single Counter) is a place where Bucharest’s trodden down masses will soon be able to do all their official business (birth certificates, marriage licenses, planning permissions, car parking spaces, driving licenses, local taxes etc) in one place, instead of scurrying all over the city to different offices, queuing at each.
Yeah, like, dream on.
