Daegu City announced yesterday that it has turned 12 of the region’s scenic landmarks into graphic motifs so they can readily be applied as icons in the offline and online worlds.
The 12 scenic icons impart the intrinsic qualities of each landmark in a compact and lucid style. Designed with suggestive and symbolic graphic images, Daegu City said it looks forward to the icons helping to create a new image for the city through by actively sharing them with the public.
Daegu City plans to use the symbolic icons to create a brand identity and raise awareness about Daegu in the international community. The icons will also be used for the city’s major design-related materials.
The 12 icons include Mt. Palgongsan, Mt. Biseulsan, Nakdonggang River and Gangjeong Goryeong Basin, Sincheon (stream), Suseongmot Lake, Dalseongtoseong (earthen fortification), Gyeongsang Gamyeong and the Old Alleys, Gukchaebosang Memorial Park, Daegu Stadium, Daegu Tower, Dongseong-ro, and Seomun Market.
