Like many around the world, we at crowdSPRING have been watching the turmoil unfold in Iran. Eager to contribute, we're hoping to help mobilize our community so that we and those around us can show their support through one of the best ways we know how: design.
For its part, crowdSPRING is supplying the award and it's marketplace to the world - the rest is up to you.
Every revolution needs a unifying symbol. Iran's citizens have bravely stood up to the repressive rule of the current regime, risking injury and life. Neda Salehi Soltani has become the worldwide face of Iran's revolution when she was killed while watching a pro-democracy protest. Many others have been killed and injured during the ongoing demonstrations in Iran.
People around the world have come together to provide support and assistance to the citizens of Iran.
We want to help by asking the world to create a common unifying symbol for this revolution that the world can give to the people of Iran and Iranians around the world.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We are looking for a symbol/small illustration that can be used by people in Iran or around the world to show their support for the ongoing revolution in Iran. Please incorporate the color green into the design. This color has become a rallying color for the demonstrations.
To help start your research, here are a few symbols used by other revolutionary movements:
1. Orange symbol (Ukrainian Revolution of 2004) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_ribb...
2. Amnesty International - http://bit.ly/amnestyintl
3. Anti-apartheid posters - http://bit.ly/antiapartheid
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Our target audience is the entire world. Create a symbol that speaks to the bravery, hunger for democracy, and sacrifice of the Iranian people.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
We can't anticipate how people will use this symbol/illustration, so please make sure that if your design is selected, it is fully vectorized so that it can be printed on small items and large signs/billboards.
The winning designer will agree to license their work under a Creative Commons Attribution license - http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3...
This project ends at 11:59 pm on July 4th. July 4 is an important day in American history because it commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and the birth of democracy in America.
On July 6, we will invite the world to come and vote for their favorite designs and we will keep voting open until July 10.
We'll be working with a small group of respected Iranians who, along with the world's votes, will assist with the final selection of the winning design. This design will then be released into the public domain for all to use.
