About the AHA16 Design
Designer Zoila Torres was born in Peru and moved to Atlanta as a child. Her wide-ranging projects include design for marketing campaigns, museum exhibitions, catalogs, and websites. In her graphic design for the AHA annual meeting , the city's most recognizable landmarks emerge from a vintage color palette of rusty red and gunmetal blue. The logo features landmarks unique to Atlanta, such as Peachtree Street, the city's main street, and one of dozens of streets with "peachtree" in its name. In the foreground is Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King, Jr, was baptized, became a pastor, and where his funeral was held in 1968. Alongside it are the historic shotgun houses, common in the city. Meanwhile, business towers and hotels reach skyward in the background. The contrasting images represent Atlanta's struggles and successes.
