The ‘BERMUDA’ brand sign design competition was launched in March and invited local artists, community groups and individuals to participate in an island-wide competition to conceptualize a design for a “BERMUDA” freestanding marquee sign.

Designers were asked to bring together the heritage of the City of Hamilton and nod to Bermuda culture to foster a sense of community pride. The competition was for the design element only, not for the fabrication or installation of the art.
City Marketing and Communications Director Jessica Astwood said: “The caliber of nominations was extremely impressive, as was the number of nominations. The competition was open to all members of the community, so we received entries from people from a variety of creative backgrounds – graphic designers, students, artists and just ordinary people who were passionate about the idea and giving Bermuda a public art installation. iconic.
“Keeon’s design was chosen because its submission really spoke about the intent of the installation: to inspire engagement with the local community and visitors to the island, and to improve the environment of the surrounding town.
“With this project, we wanted to create an iconic sign that people would be drawn to and who they would like to engage with – a sign that would also celebrate the local arts community and Bermudan culture, and we believe Keeon’s design will do just that. .
“The City would like to thank everyone who participated. The City will work with Keeon to finalize all aspects of the design and is currently exploring responsible manufacturing options that suit the scope of the project. The location of the city for the installation has not yet been decided.
“The City will make other announcements regarding the location and date of the installation in the coming months.”
