The “Dutch School Vienna” (Nederlandse School Wenen) is an association of expat parents from the Netherlands and Belgium, that organizes language and culture education for Dutch and Flemish speaking children in Vienna.
NTC Vienna had existed for 20 years and it was time for some celebration (and redesign!). Children were asked to find a nice name for their school, and after voting, the name “de Prater” has been chosen.
There are two meanings to the word: Prater is a ferris wheel in Vienna, one of the city's iconic landmarks. Also in Dutch “de prater” means “someone talking”, which is a nice reference to school and education, and the ability to express yourself well in Dutch. We combined the two concepts in a simple, yet smart logo.
