Many of you have endured long, sleepless nights, tossing and turning in your bed and muttering to yourself: “When will DYNAMO_politics finally come out with an official logo that will represent them on all their webpages and merchandise?”
I know I have.
But now, our impatient waiting is finally over! Thanks to one of my most articistically gifted friends, DYNAMO will finally have a symbol of its own to be proud of.
DYNAMO’s been in sore need of a logo for quite some time. Our Gravatar account is basically naked, and the @DYNAMO_politics twitpic (follow us!) doesn’t really set us apart from anyone. After witnessing my own horrific attempts at creating a logo – some of which still leave me scarred today – I decided to contact the experts. Fortunately, I met a fabulous artist by the name of Nekoda Witsken last year in my Comp class, and she agreed to help me out.
After she and I batted some concepts around, she came up with the drawing you see above – a creation which far exceeded my expectations. She’s tremendously talented and, lucky for you, she just started a business to make custom paintings, logos, and even tattoos! If any of you out there need any kind of artwork made, you should go talk to her!
Ok, so a little about the logo. I knew I wanted a logo that represented the ideas of both strength and a common goal. The symbol of four hands reaching out to each other together conveys this notion perfectly. By working hard, and, perhaps more importantly, by working together, we can overcome any challenge our nation faces. That’s the promise of Modern Conservatism, and the promise of DYNAMO.
