OUR WORK: THE PERICLES FOUNDATION
ABOUT OUR WORK
Doets Design started working with the Pericles Foundation at a very early stage, and oversaw many graphic developments. The main focus of the foundation’s graphic identity was going to the marble bust of the ancient Greek soldier Pericles. Therefore, a lot of time and effort was spent in finding a photograph, which captured the bust at the best angle for the graphic design.
Due to time restraints the brochure and business cards were needed before the final logo design was ready and approved. The main visuals for this material would therefore be the bust photographs themselves and actual human eyes were added as an extra touch. After the final logo designs had been approved, work on the website started in earnest. The website needed to be clean and functional with few graphic elements to distract from the text.

Open to all, the Pericles Foundation endeavours to bridge the academic and policy communities; and concurrently reach out to the general public. With an eye on the long view of the lessons of history and trends of the future, their focus is on leadership.
“We study leadership and devote our mission to the education of leaders. We believe that passing on the legacy and experiences of past scholars and leaders is an important step in building bridges between generations.”
The Pericles Foundation conducts original research and transforms existing knowledge, in three programmes:
The original research programme Strategy and Law is focused on the interplay between international strategy, policy processes and the rule of law.
In the New Talent programme they engage outstanding young scholars and facilitate the transformation of their research, such as their PhD thesis, into accessible editions for a broad audience and catalyse their career.
In the Translation programme they organise the translation and publication into English of novel and illuminating scholarship. By increasing the accessibility of innovative scholarship, effective new leaders and scholars are nurtured.
With a growing international network of researchers, authors, publishers and institutional partners, The Pericles Foundation is in a unique position to build bridges across generations, disciplines and continents.
