New visual identity of Daugavpils Innovation Centre

A brand and logo have been developed for the Daugavpils Innovation Centre. At the basis of the logo there is a sphere. The main value of the brand is inclusion – in nature, science, society, relationships and even at the level of personality dimensions.
