The Specifics

Occupy Design is a grassroots project which creates open-source visual tools around a common graphic language to unite the 99%. We’re calling all techies, artists and designers to volunteer their talents by submitting an image that bolsters this objective through creative data visualization.

All submitted designs will be voted on by the community. We’ll use $750 from the GOOD Fund in order to bring the winning design to life: Occupy Design will print and distribute the winning design, AND we’ll send the winner their design printed on a vinyl weatherproof sign and several 11×17 prints as well as an Occupy Design t-shirt.

Submissions should include the image of the design and a brief written description. You do not need to include a project plan or description of how the image should be used.

Individuals and organizations can participate. Once projects are submitted, rally your friends, family and colleagues to get behind your effort and join the GOOD community in voting for the best design.

To spark your imagination, here are links to datasets you could use:

In addition, you can download the Occupy Design Design Toolkit here. It is meant to kickstart designers contributing to the movement and to provide some common visual threads across designs. It includes:

  • An Illustrator Template for infographic signage
  • Rasterbator Standalone (Windows) for creating large-scale tiled signage from 8.5″ x 11″ sheets
  • Occupy Design Fist SVG Logo
  • Occupy Fist SVG Logo
  • Oswald Font for Designs (two weights)
