New logo ASSITEJ Italia

The new ASSITEJ Italia logo is an idea of  Francesca Mayer,  an italian designer.  In particular, the study of the new logo was inspired by the masks and associated studies of Bruno Munari – graphic designer and writer for children – world wide known. He is famous for his multifaceted research on the theme of movement, light and the development of creativity and imagination in childhood, through play.
