Client: Sakan Community Resource
Sakan is a nonprofit organization that focuses on providing affordable housting and renting options for large familes looking to avoid debt and interest baring loans.
They had approached me to design a logo for their vision. The word ‘sakan’ is the arabic word for house, home, lodge, a place to stay…It comes from the root word ‘sakinah’ meaning tranquility–Home is where the family is, home is where you find tranquilty. I wanted to incorporate the word Sakan arabic writing in the design, after several sketches in front of the client I came up with the following design in which the arabic word makes up the dark green outline of the house, fence and yard, with a snapshot of a beautiful sunny day.
