SPASI ZNAK! / SAVE THE SIGN! is project proposing conservation and protection of old factory signs, writings and logos in the Zagreb area.
After the collapse of various factories and industrial plants that once were one of the most important elements of development and economic prosperity in former Yugoslavia, signs of these factories are often the only thing left on the ruined buildings. Zagreb was one of the major industrial centers and in the city area there are a number of such examples.
Project Spasi znak (Save the sign) include photographing, documenting and cataloging the remaining signs in the Zagreb area, publishing a book with the results of these studies, and attempt to find a location for storage of these signs, as well as financial and expert support for their restoration and protection.
The book contains around hundred examples of logos recorded on the facades of the former factories or stores of these factories.
