Adapted from the original logo designed by Abram Games incorporating heraldic imagery and angular geometry to create a striking portrait representing the national character.
This emblem featured on posters, souvenirs and guidebooks and became emblematic of what became known as ‘Festival Style.’
Devised as a ‘tonic for the nation’ the Festival illustrated the British contribution to civilisation, past, present and future by showcasing the arts, sciences, technology and designs of the times through the lens of history.
The National Archives holds many thousands of unique items which tell the story of the Festival including photographs, plans, objects from the Festival site as well as documents and official memos.
