Vila Rubra is a branding project by Susana Antão. The project was an exercise to design an identity for a new Angolan city near Luanda.
The brief asked for the creation of an identity for the brand new Angolan city of VilaRubra. A city near Luanda, that represents a new, better life for thousand of Angolans – A city imagined and created from scratch.
We created an identity inspired in the flowers of the Acacia Rubra, a native tree, from which the city’s name has already derived.
The result was a simplified flower, stylized in little dots, that represent the city’s neighbourhoods from a sky view.
