This year the central topic of the idea-based TEDxRiga conference is "The Power of Small," because each of us can ensure significant changes and do big things. As the Latvian folk saying goes, "a small rock can upset a large cart." In visual terms, this essence is revealed in small details and humble simplicity, giving the floor to a tiny screw, button or needle and thread - invisible everyday heroes that deserve our attention and are therefore in frames as heroes on the wall of fame.

The aim of the charity concert is to collect funds to help children from Ukraine to recover from the horrors of war at sanatoriums in Latvia. We needed to create an emotionally powerful message to make people think and donate money. We chose to talk about things that can be seen in a child's drawing, not a photograph. The photograph shows what is, but we wanted to show what the children have lost in their lives, that which is always replaced by a sense of loss and emptiness.

"Andrito" coffee packaging design

Andrito coffee is absolutely unique, since it is made in two different parts of the world.
The coffee beans are grown in the warm sun rays of South America, but are given their unique blend of taste in Latvia. While both places might seem far off one another, they are both united not only by coffee but also by the power of dance!
Just like Latvian culture, Columbia, Argentine and Brazil has a strong link and history with dance, so now we can see the Columbian dancer Kaldi taking out Latvian Baiba for a spin on the brand new packaging of Andrito Coffee.

The main functions are to break stereotypes, introduce the city, create a unique visual language for communicating and interacting with all target audiences, give an impulse to development and tell a story about the city.
Usually, visual identities of cities represent places of interest; therefore, they are static, fade away quickly and are hardly liked by anyone. The idea is about dynamism and the possibility of editing both the symbol and the slogan.
