IOPS Logo Project
|Created on:||21st May 2013|
[ Question about IOPS LOGO ]
(1) Implication: International + Organization + Participatory + Society =
(2) Visual: As an image, does the existing logo have charisma getting for people’s attention?
(3) Difference: The difference between IOPS's logo and any other commercial logo?
Logo have few Key words: property, cohesiveness, symbolic. Logo’s history started with the branding of domestic animals, the images on coin’s, religious symbols, and insignia for war. And for now, logos are very common in the commercial world. Because one strength of the logo is to divide ‘us’ and ‘them’. (like my cow, our army, our religion and our company) As much as community wants to come together, logo’s symbolic power to become strong.
+ Visual effect = the logo for IOPS can be visually more nice.
Set up a table in the street and invite members of the community to draw images and symbols that come to their mind when they hear the word 'participation'. In this way, we can involve the community, spread some information about IOPS to interested people and gather images inspired by the collective mind. I have experience as a street performer and communicaiton artist, and supprisingly many people are willing to engage and participate in projects like this. I think it can be a fun and productive event.
We can then take these images, choose the best one, or ones, and then remake them into a potential logo. Then, we can upload it to the international page and where Tim is going to start a competition for any member to make a new logo. Then, based on our community are project, we can put in an entry to the international page and possibly create a new and better IOPS logo!
So, if you would like to help in this project, let's get in contact! The plan is to set up for two days, Saturday and Sunday of the weekend after next (see below) in a couple of different places. I would like some help explaining to people what IOPS is and anyone is welcome to join.
