In a nutshell
The "Bayerischer Archivtag" (eng: Bavarian archiving day) is an annual event for archivists. During the event they have the chance to attend lectures and discussions.
The challenge was to create a symbol that shows the variety of work the archivists do, from archives of church and aristocracy and archiving of student documents to digital archiving.
We use paper clips daily, without thinking twice about how helpful they are to organize and store documents. Just like archives are doing important work to organize and store documents. That's why I've oriented myself on a paper clips as a symbol. Also all lines run towards the center which illustrates the archivists meeting.
