The Story behind Our Logo

The Story behind Our Logo

Since 2018 the Russian Art & Culture Group has its own logo which you may see here and there on our website. Some participants of the workshops already guessed that this logo – which was created by our member Ludmila Piters-Hofmann – includes some recognizable elements.

You may now find out how the logo was created and what the individual elements represent.
