Hi Antonio,

Attached is the set of fonts that have been used predominantly. We have chosen this font family, Knockout (designed by the same guys that did the Obama font, Gotham) because it has been continuously used by other designers since the start of the occupation. Personally, I view this whole movement as a hug crowdsourcing experiment. So we did not choose this font solely because of its appropriate design (namely, that this style of font has been used in protests for about one hundred years), but rather because this seems to be the consensus of the OWS movement.

Getting everyone on the same page is obviously difficult and presents a whole new set of problems, so I appreciate you reaching out. I assume you have interest since you asked about it, and if you have any thoughts regarding visual identity, etc, please do let me know. I would love to hear your thoughts, as this process of consensus is more interesting to me than simply choosing something I think looks good.

Anyway, Hope you like the font and hit me up if you have any questions or comments.

All the best & solidarity,
Adam Bezer

Hi Design Working Group,
I've been looking around to see if any progress has been made in the group in regards to the Design-Guide Toolbox? I only found one mention in the minutes below. But that's the last I heard of it.

October 16 Minutes

Best,

*My advice on this toolbox is that a basic or beta toolbox be rolled out and improvements be made as the design working group moves along. The basic set can take cues from ubiquitous city signage which is very clear and neutral.*
