The IFST Logo

The IFST logo and the first two editions of the IFST newsletter Giant Leap were designed by Bill Kienzel, Lettera Mundi Graphic Design & Typographic Consulting, 805.684.9696.

Designer's Note: The logo design is somewhat pictographic—in IFST's case a more appropriate solution than a straight typographic approach, since the context for the Treaty is worldwide. The symbolic shapes used for the I (a person being vocal), the F (an outstretched hand), the S (slices of bread or other food on a plate, whose circular boundary also represents security) and the T (a table or serving bowl) are intended to be meaningful to a non-alphabetic reader or even to an illiterate viewer.
