Jonathan Barnbrook: Occupy London logo

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Leaving aside the whys and wherefores of whether a grassroots political campaign like Occupy London needs a logo, it’s interesting to see that an online poll has selected this one from Jonathan Barnbrook. The striking design combines the OL initials with the pertinent idea of a real sense of time and place, and Jonathan said on Twitter he was “honoured” to have been chosen. His Bastard font is also used for the Occupy London newspaper, putting him at the visual forefront of the protest.
