Working with Taste Creative on logo pitch for Special Olympics Australia
Henry Smith, creative director at Taste, saw an opportunity to create the first inclusive logo for Special Olympics, the world’s largest sports organisation for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
He recruited renowned Sydney-based artist and long-time Taste Creative affiliate, Digby Webster, to bring the logo to life. Known for his bold and colourful oil pastel and ink artwork, Digby is an artist with Down Syndrome and has had his work showcased in an impressive number of exhibitions across the country.
Working closely with Henry, Webster painted his creative expression of South Australia, the recently announced host city for the games, in acrylic paint on canvas.
Says Webster: “I am very excited and very happy to do this. I have never done something like this before. It is big and amazing and I loved working with Henry at Taste.”
