2016, Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design

Winner of 2016 Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design Logo Contest

The logo is an impossible optical object depicting movement and stillness, either a dynamic shape based on the endless line of the Möbius invention, representing the continuous and unstoppable advance creativity, or a solid and balanced interpretation of the structure of the Macintosh chair, finding a fixed point to connect with the Scottish culture and design.


Year 2016 in Scotland will shine a spotlight on Scotland’s achievements in innovation, architecture and design with a wide-ranging programme of events and festivals, underlined by the support of PR and marketing activity delivered by VisitScotland.
