Logo design workshop with public contributors
The logo and images used in this page were designed by the project’s public contributors in an art workshop co-facilitated with Devon & Cornwall Refugee Support
. Through drawing and painting, the contributors convey how they make sense of the “Routes to Wellness” project.
The Routes to Wellness logo (Fig.1) was produced by one of the workshop attendees; with the heart shape representing the letter R and cardiogram representing letter “W”. W is combined with the letter “O’’ creating an image of a person which adequately illustrates our person-centred approach to mental health.
Another contributor expresses “Routes to Wellness” by creating an image of representing friendship support (Fig. 3). In addition, traditional Kurdish music instrument “tanbur” (or “buzuq”) was drawn to represent the memory of participating in locally held music events in Devonport (Fig. 2), where there were brown and green colours at the place. The instrument would worn through time, therefore the dry brush of brown in between the green and brown crescents to tell the time and the uses of the instrument.
A contributor painted a woman figure in a boat heading towards Plymouth’s Smeaton's Tower surrounded by a whale which is the contributor’s dream to witness. The women’s heart opens with a hole representing low feelings, nevertheless, a robin emerges symbolising her hope for the future.
