From Terschelling to Maastricht and.....the LOGO

Submitted by beheerder on Mon, 06/22/2015 - 13:37

What a wonderful week and what a fun to experience a beautiful NL . From the sea, beach tent and cranberries from Terschelling to the 'mountains', castle and flan in Limburg ☺.


Terschelling was a party. Oerol, a great program and we have seen many beautiful productions. We were lucky with the weather. "Traditional Dutch" was expected, however after some drizzle, the sun came and that really made it relaxed. Nice in the dunes to enjoy the performances, great cycling from West to Oosterend, fine dining at the Whale ...... holiday and top!


Then to Limburg. Triathlon Stein, an event where I participants for the 31st time. From 1985 to the end of the 20th century as a triathlete and the last decade as a speaker for the live report from the motorbike. As a farewell, I was appointed this weekend as race director. I've enjoyed it. In the middle of this beautiful triathlon NL, a race through the mountains of Limburg. A nice farewell and from the hands of President Harrie Impelmans I received the "honorary membership" of the Triathlon Limburg! I am proud that I could contribute to this top sporting event!


Yes, and the time goes fast. Just two weeks before departure. The tension are sometimes increasing. Butterflies in my stomach, soon it will really happen. Despite the long preparation, by living my dream and the drive and passion also occasionally uncertainty. This came sometimes unexpectedly blew over and take possession of my mind. Then hurry back to the Mantra; "I can, I want and I do it."


As a guest writer my cousin Laurens Hilboezen, Creative Director of Bureau Opvallend;

"In early April, Peter Hans approached me to create a logo design for his PTD Golden Heart Hotel. It was a very interesting project and I wanted to contribute to designing a unique logo for him. After reading the business plan I wrote down a few key words: sustainability, happiness, accessible and golden heart (for you (hotel) guests and staff). When the key words were formulated, I made several sketches and made a presentation of the three concept logos. Following tips, additions, changes in color and the advises of the Ambassadors in the Netherlands and Cambodia, Peter Hans has chosen this unique logo design:


The logo has a modern and fresh look. The logo is a combination of flowering foliage and an abstract heart. The leaves stand for a new beginning and the sustainability. This is reinforced by the green element. Abstract heart that is reflected in the two leaves of the logo, stands for "Golden Heart", trust, love and happiness. The font is sleek, easy to read and has a modern look. Bottom right is text in Khmer, namely: "Koperberg - Copper Mountain - Phnom Tong Daeng"

I wish Peterhans, Frieda and all the other involved great success and make your dreams come true!"


And now...... Further packing and counting,

Love and until next blog
