Fresh Projects: Building Markets in Timor-Leste

Building Markets , part of Peace Dividend Trust's economic recovery efforts, has implemented their "Buy Local" logo with great success in the field, most recently in Timor-Leste.


The logo, which is designed to reflect restorative economic growth that occurs when a developing country buys goods and services locally, has been applied in several incarnations, such as office, street cart and ferry signage.peace_dividend_trust_dili_officeThese application methods are indicative of the logo's success facilitated by its simplicity; it lends itself to digital media reproductions as well as old style application techniques such as stencil painting.peace_dividend_trust_nakroma2Designed by partner Emanuela Frigerio , the logo has also been part of initiatives in Afghanistan and Haiti.
