Its main objective is to reveal the role of the Ancient Stadium as a resource for sustainable development and to improve the quality of the urban environment in the historical centre of the city of Plovdiv.

Lettering logotypes for the identity of the Ancient Stadium in English and Bulgarian. The lettershapes are based on monumental Roman inscriptions from first and second century CE. The layout follows the logic of the time – central symetry with a tendancy toward justification. The color used is a Pompeii red.
