The Water Footprint logo
The Water Footprint logo has been designed in 2008 by Angela Morelli, information designer, at the occasion of the launch of the Water Footprint Network. The design of the footprint is based on the properties of water: fluidity, softness, and viscosity. Morelli: “A dripping foot that is loosing an essential part of its structure, a part that is fundamental for human balance.” The creative process underlying the logo is told in a special document made about the design process The logo of the Water Footprint Network was also designed by Morelli. The drop of water shown in the water footprint logo comes back in the logo of the Water Footprint Network, to emphasize that it is water that connects us all.
