Logo design contest to mark 45 years of Belgian Vietnamese relations

Le Anh

Belgium Ambassador to Vietnam Jehanne Roccas and Associate Professor Nguyen Xuan Nghi, Rector of the University of Industrial Fine Arts, today will preside over the opening of the logo design workshop in the framework of the Logo Design Contest to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Belgium and Vietnam in 2018 at the University of Industrial Fine Arts.

Through this week-long training conducted by Arno Heeren, a Belgian professional graphic designer, the Belgian Embassy wants to give students of the university the opportunity to bring into play their creative potential and gain a critical insight into modern logotype designs. Finally, with the knowledge and inspiration gathered during the workshop, students will make their own logotypes to participate in the contest.

The winner will be selected by a jury comprising the Belgian Ambassador, representative of Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as professionals. The winning design will serve as the official logotype for all celebrations linked to the anniversary. The winner will also be offered a first on-the-job-experience through a two-week internship at the PR agency Happiness Saigon in HCMC, founded by the Belgian Alan Cerutti.

Friendship and multifaceted cooperation between Belgium and Vietnam have been fostered over the last 44 years since the two countries established diplomatic relations in 1973. This year, the two sides also look back on 40 years of presence of the Belgian Development Cooperation in Vietnam.

Belgium has supported the development of Vietnam in a number of areas. In particular, Belgium has assisted Vietnamese education through scholarship programs and knowledge exchange. So far, more than 2,000 Vietnamese have obtained Belgian education.

From being long-standing partners in development cooperation, Belgium and Vietnam have been promoting bilateral ties in different sectors. This workshop is an occasion for Belgium to reiterate its support towards education in Vietnam and honor 45 years of diplomatic relations with the country.
