Great Britain: Design student designed logo for anniversary of Queen’s throne

The logo is set for the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the throne of Queen Elizabeth II, 95, in the coming year. In a competition for young designers, the design of student Edward Roberts was selected, as announced by the palace.

It features a white, stylized crown with the number 70 curved – the whole thing on a round background reminiscent of the royal seal and in royal purple. Edwards said that he designed the crown with a single line “to represent the continued reign of the Queen”. The 19-year-old is studying Graphic and Communication Design at the University of Leeds.

The palace had announced a competition for 13 to 25-year-olds to create a symbol that would do justice to and rejoice with the “smartphone generation”. The selection was eventually made by various art experts from Great Britain and a representative from the palace.

Jury member Paul Thompson of London’s Royal College of Art said: “This clean graphic design takes us on a simple linear journey to create the crown and number 70 and beautifully capture the continuing thread of the Queen’s 70-year reign. “

Winner Edward Roberts can now attend the ceremony as a guest next year. Specifically for the so-called platinum anniversary, the United Kingdom is planning a four-day celebration of the monarchy from June 2 to June 5, 2022. There is also an extra day off for all Britons on this occasion. A large military parade, a church service, a concert with world stars and a horse race are planned – the Queen is believed to be a horse lover.
