Design a billboard for American Atheist event!

I’m speaking at the American Atheists RAM (here’s the meetup page) in October.  It’s going to be a real hoot.  The theme is “Godless Government” and they’re going to put up some billboards to advertise it.

But they’re having trouble coming up with a solid design.  How many of you graphics people out there can come up with something firebrandy with that theme?  :)

Not sure on the dimensions, but if yours is selected maybe we can work with those?  Not sure.  Details about the event can be found in the links above.

Either post in the comments or email to wwjtd21[at]gmail[dot]com.

    It doesn’t have to be an actual photoshop’d design, we just need ideas!

      Oh, that’s easier, then! :)

      Here’s an idea to start things off:
      A ‘blind justice’ statue (the upper part), with a symbol of Christianity on one side of the scales and a symbol of atheism on the other side of the scales, evenly balanced.

    I make a suggestion. Come up with several examples. Show them all to David Silverman. The one he dislikes most is the one you should go with.

      Excellent idea, but they’re paying for it so they’ve already rejected our “Godless Government” and “Patriot and Atheist” designs as not being controversial enough.

      Maybe if we redesigned it in Papyrus with a red on black color scheme…

    Crowd-sourcing this is brilliant; some of their past designs (simply from a layout and graphical perspective – I’m not even talking about information content) have been less than stellar.

      Yeah, ideas are one thing, execution is another matter.

    If it is godless government then i would have god from the creation of adam reaching out to the founding fathers as they are writing the constitution and have them absent mindedly shooing him

  • doctorburger

    If nobody is offended, then we didn’t do our job. That’s the basic idea.

  • Hagan

    Do something along the lines of people having their own personal god whose characteristics are just how they view the world. Christians all believe in one God, who is different in everyone’s mind.
