Research on Mediterranean women, cultural differences and similarities

Because The Mediterranean consists of 27 surrounding countries, we decided to initiate research to get more profound views on similarities and differences. It's hard to create one united identity that covers all features of all countries, but the research provided us with an outcome to use as base for most according characteristics. Part of this included interviews with men but mostly women with origins or residence in amongst others France, Spain, Turkey, Israel, Lebanon, Tunisia and Marocco. They have been asked to give their perspective on society in their country as a whole, specific role of women and opportunities or obstacles faced in pursuing career or business. The output has been of great value and importance for gaining insights, in order to create a united identity that connects with the target group in the entire area.

Capturing the modern Mediterranean woman

The main focus has been to create of profile the Mediterranean woman of nowadays. With regards to personal lifestyle, happiness, education and aiming, next to more status driven desires in need of support by self-made business trade and profits. Key description is self-consiousness and contribution of a significant share to the own family's opportunities and prosperity.

Concept of the logo design

For designing of the logo the most significant factor of the 27 different countries has been used: their connection by the Mediterranean Sea. Yet the sea concept and logo design stand for a lot more: multiple number of waves symbolise the social group perspective ‘profit for all’. The overall shape of the logo relates to the eye: looking towards the horizon for exploration and expansion. An open logo without frame: infinite for further growth. Waves: gaining body, strength, growth, flow, on the move. Versatile: depth, tide and flow, calm and wild. Feminine: curves of the waves and use of a round based font.
