A kind of clock
Logo design, Digital
A kind of clock is a world of poetry from Greek into English.
On akindofclock.com you may find material on Greek poetry translated into English including poems, book reviews, essays on translation and a library with a list of available books. The website aims to gather all material in one place so that Greek poetry may become available to an international audience.
The translated text is a kind of clock conflating time and space in the poetic universe.
The varied ways in which different languages return to a text at different moments in their history makes them ventures into the meaning of the text itself; it is in this sense that translation is a type of writing that can be considered as a form of memory.
The logo uses the shape of a generic clock combined with another shape to produce two forms seen as one. The two forms represent the two languages/cultures involved in the process of translation from Greek into English while the clock itself is a visual representation of the website’s rationale according to which the translated text is a kind of clock conflating time and space in the poetic universe.
