I believe that the best is to avoid the common happy figures. So i went directly to the aim of this logo and what it represents.
Please describe the creative approach you took to your design
I reflected the number four, so it fits perfectly with number two and looks different with its own uniqueness. The numbers of the year are conecteted by the German flag above of the football field. I designed a logo unique, different from others and have a message.
Please explain how you incorporated the messages, values and mandatory elements outlined above into your design
The green colour either with stripes or not represents the field and the three colours the German flag above the field. The reflected number four represents why Germany will be different from the other bidders.
Why should your design become the logo for the bidding phase?
As said above. For its uniqueness and difference.
HAVE YOU READ THE" GUIDELINES, REGULATIONS & COMMENTS" SECTION IN THE BRIEF AND IS THIS YOUR ORIGINAL WORK?
Yes, that way i avoided the common mistakes that made in many submissions.
