The ICEHO Logo

Our logo was generously created for ICEHO by Dr. Bjørn Laursen, associate professor in the Department of Communication and Humanities, Roskilde University, Denmark.

Professor Laursen is an acclaimed graphic designer, artist, and author. His most recent works include an interactive book that is being installed at The Viking Museum in Roskilde, and “The All Saints Night Lightening,” 2013-2015, in downtown Roskilde, which he developed in cooperation with light-artist Dr. Honoris Causa.

We are grateful for Professor Laursen's contributions.
