Chignik Lagoon Native Corporation

PROJECT

Logo design and stationery package

DESCRIPTION

Chignik Lagoon Native Corporation is an ANCSA village corporation on the Alaska Peninsula. The new logo reflects many local influences: Chignik Lagoon is primarily a fishing village – dependent on the sea for its livelihood; its ties to the land include a future in mineral exploration, and the village sprouted up in the shadow of Castle Cape, a craggy and mysterious rock formation that rises from the sea; Chignik means “big wind” in Aleut, and the village’s first commercial endeavor is an aviation service.

Air, land, and sea are all represented in the logo, a symbol of a small Native community defined like no other by its environment. The swirling wind patterns borrow a common Aleut beading style that often shows up on decorative ceremonial and hunting garb.
