Can You Design a Logo?

JT Eberhard has been working on a campaign for the Secular Student Alliance to help young atheists (and their allies). It’s called the “Secular Safe Zone”:

Originally designed for high schools, the program will include online training sessions every month for teachers and other educators who wish to participate. Upon completion of training, these administrators will be sent Safe Zone materials such as posters or banners to hang in their classroom, announcing them as an ally to atheistic students. The high school environment is often hostile to non-believers. This program will give those students help. In early 2012 we will launch the program for high schools and colleges across the United States.

It’s modeled after the very successful LGBT Safe Zone.

What JT needs right now is a logo for the project. There are several specifications which are listed on his site. If you’re a graphic designer who wants to give back to the community, please consider helping out!

    My high school environment was semi-hostile to religious people, if you hung around with the right crowd like I did lol. It’s unfortunate that that’s not all as widespread.

    At least from their web site you’d think that LGBT Safe Zone program is dead, as the page you linked is old/archived, all the image links are dead, and a search on their site just links back to it. I was going to see what kinda of logo THEY had, but a quick Google Images search reveals that they pretty desperately need a national logo designed too. : /

    The color scheme they chose sucked all the ideas out of my head, haha…. It sounds like a wonderful idea though.

      Unless I missed it they didn’t say you have to use all, or even more than one, of the colors. They just said you have to use colors from that palette. I submitted a design that used just one. Just sayin.

    I saw at least one self-proclaimed graphic artist gripe about billboard designs in another post. Here’s a golden opportunity for her/him to be more than pessimistic words.

    I can already see theists complaining “We can’t hang Christian Safe Zone posters in the classroom, why can atheists?”

    Atheism isn’t a religion. Deal with it.
