A way to solve Europe’s refugee crisis is by providing an island, a new land for opportunity. The island can be developed and inhabited by homeless refugees fleeing conflict in Syria, Iraq and other countries. There are many islands which are deserted and can accommodate hundreds of thousands of refugees. This island can provide migrants with a place to stay in a dignified way until they can safely return home.
The new society can create and support a new infrastructure. Initially, they are sheltered and fed. Later they may gain professional skills, help farm, build housing, schools, universities and hospitals for each other.
OBSIDA creates a brighter future for refugees.
OBSIDA is an opportunity to help rebuild lives. The logo is an engaging face, a symbol of the birthplace for a new legacy. The round shape of the symbol depicts an island, conveying a new interactive community and future infrastructure. Using a clear, universal verbal and visual language, we developed a personality for refugees and supporters to understand and positively react with.
The name OBSIDA is created from the word ‘Obsidian’, a crystal stone traced back to Palaeolithic times. It was an important raw material for manufacturing and trade, once utilised by ancient people for making tools.
