Fondation Le Refuge – Marseille

Le Refuge is the only organisation in France, recognised as being of public utility, to offer temporary accommodation and social, medical, psychological and legal support to young adults who are victims of homophobia or transphobia and who are experiencing family breakdown.

The structure offers support and temporary accommodation in the relay flats of one of its 20 departmental delegations.

The aim is to enable the young person to stabilise and rebuild his or her life and gradually gain financial and material independence.

It accompanies young people in the asylum process, in connection with other structures, particularly for the preparation of the interview at the OFPRA.

Rainbow Welcome! visual universe

Rainbow Welcome! visual identity has been developed by Alison Roger France, in collaboration with PLS and all the partners. 

She studied the complexity of sexuality, sexual orientations, genders, gender expressions, identities, sexual characteristics, fluidity between the various spectrums, etc. She also adopted a reflective creation process including refugees’ journey in life and on earth to finally come with those organic forms whose nasting, movements and textures aim at illustrating the multiplicity and complexity of each and all individuals. Of course, the colours of the LGBTIQ+ flag have been used. The whole is wanted to be dynamic, intriguing and … positive. Our message is the one of reception and inclusion, as stated in our motto “Rainbow refugees, WELCOME!”.

L'universo visivo di Rainbow Welcome!

L’identità visiva di Rainbow Welcome! è stata sviluppata da Alison Roger France, in collaborazione con PLS e tutti i partner.

Ha studiato la complessità della sessualità, gli orientamenti sessuali, i generi, le espressioni di genere, le identità, le caratteristiche sessuali, la fluidità tra i vari spettri, ecc. Ha anche adottato un processo di creazione riflessivo che include il viaggio dei rifugiati nella vita e sulla terra per arrivare infine a quelle forme organiche la cui tostatura, i movimenti e le texture mirano a illustrare la molteplicità e la complessità di ognuno e di tutti gli individui. Naturalmente sono stati usati i colori della bandiera LGBTIQ+. L’insieme vuole essere dinamico, intrigante e … positivo. Il nostro messaggio è quello dell’accoglienza e dell’inclusione, come recita il nostro motto “Rainbow refugees, WELCOME!”.
