LOGO – from Rubber Glue to AI
Opening Sept 22 at 6pm.
Ado Tuuga (b.1953) is an accomplished graphic designer who’s been working in the field since the 1990s. In this exhibition, he presents his extensive collection of logo design, spanning decades, reflecting signs of the times – changing tools of the trade, changing fashions.
Educated as an architect, Tuuga started his career in the restoration of estate buildings, followed by a new, self-studied career in graphic design. As business was booming in newly independent Estonia, demand for visual identity was high. Tuuga also won the prestigious 2nd prize at the competition to design the Estonian currency, and went on to found his own graphic design and print studio Adograaf in 1994. The Rapla-based studio continues to operate , managed by the author’s sons.
This exhibition celebrates Tuuga’s 70th birthday along with his 30-year-long journey in his profession. The author sees the logo as a work of art, telling the story of a business, molding its identity, and requiring creativity, passion, philosophy, spirituality, and an eye for beauty, to design.
