Background information

Name to incorporate in the logo

Occupy.com

Description of the organization and its target audience

Occupy.com is looking for a logo!

This logo will live on occupy.com and @occupy on twitter. Our plan is that It will go on billboards, on TV, in magazines, on sidewalks, street walls, maybe even T-shirts -- and on everything you can imagine all over the world. The goal is simple: to engage people in this movement.

We are challenging designers to think beyond the iconic Clenched Fist and create a new iconic symbol for resistance, solidarity and empowerment in the 21st century. It should appeal to a broad base and reflect the diversity of the 99%, while encompassing the values of the Occupy Movement – among them, integrity, justice, freedom, equality, compassion, community and true democracy.

Each artist should submit two pieces:

1. The iconic image alone
2. The iconic image integrated with the word Occupy and/or occupy.com.

We are open to any and all ideas.
