islands in the sun.

"what is distinctive is the symbolic transformation of the islands
to another thing. this is the nature of design, you are always
adjusting reality to arrive at some other thing."
- milton glaser

the islands of the bahamas: the first country we've wanted to
visit based on its logo. coloufully evocative, abstract yet still
representational, it holds its ground as a fantastic piece of
branding by the MN-based studio Duffy & Partners. come to
think of it, if summer had a logo, wouldn't this be it? as the
beach boys would say, that's where you want to go to get
away from it all.
