Grid, font, icons

(I love grids.)

All of the elements developed in the visual identity are built on a single grid.

A system of icons was built on the basis of the same grid, following three different semantic areas.

The three groups of icons identify three macro sections of the multifunctional center.
 

  1. "Selva"
    A set of stylized plants and green elements. It identifies the gardens and vegetable garden section.

  2. "Ortaggi"
    Fruits, vegetables, edible plants ...
    They are associated with the restaurant and the teahouse.

  3. "Polline"
    System of modular organic elements, more abstract;
    It marks the coworking and the course area.
