Provided quote:“The mark we designed combines the profile of the Castillo de San Marcos with a representation of water, and the colors reflect both our Spanish heritage (in earthy terra cotta oranges and vibrant reds) and our maritime history (in a regal blue). The typography feels both historic and humanistic.”
Plans are in development for coming back to Europe in Spring of 2018 with the current top contender host city of Barcelona.
