Occupy Design

Occupy Design is one of the better things to come out of the current Occupy movement going on all over the damn place.

Occupy Design is a grassroots project connecting designers with on-the-ground demonstrators in the Occupy Together movement. The project’s goal is to create freely available visual tools around a common graphic language to unite the 99%. The project places an emphasis on producing infographics and icons to improve the communication of the movement’s messages and the data surrounding them across the world.

This isn't a political blog, but I think it's safe to say that much of the coverage of the protests has been abysmal, focusing on the dirt bag hippies and emphasizing the worst parts of the movement. This group seeks to do assist media coverage and the protests by helping offering clear info graphics and signage. You can even get involved and submit work for the cause. I dig it. Design works.
