I've been working on this logo for APCTP the past few days, its for an association that is responsible for the development and management of 4 Science and Technology parks in the northern Portugal. Its an half public half private association. The parks offer space and special facilities to the companies that decide to join them, they have joint resources, shared equipment conference rooms, spa, restaurants, etc.
The kite was selected because of some historical background, like Benjamin Franklin s kite, and although it is a very simple object and shape, it has several utilities from fun to science.
I've been trying to avoid a too technological approach in term of visual language,trying to bypass the grid like typography from computer screens and mobile phones, or the analogical/digital retro, although I've been testing it with some of these fonts, as an assurance.
The version presented here is a sketch, and if possible I would like to hear some opinions
