How Mikael Lönnroth started their logo design journey
Maailmanpuolue (english: World party or World's party)
The world is filled with people who live in terrible conditions without money, food, shelter or a hope for a better future. Our idea is that governments and parliaments around the world should increase their focus on global human rights and development issues and look at the world as a whole instead of just the people and geography within a set of borders. As the financial and economical world turns global, the human rights issues should not be left behind.
Maailmanpuolue (world party or world's party) will be participating in the Finnish parliament elections 2011 and we need a logo that (optimally) can embody the following ideas:
- our national borders are not important, we should be interested in the wellbeing of all the people of the world
- we support immigration and foreigners living in Finland (most other parties don't)
- we want to promote ideas about love, human caring, empathy ahead of economics
Maailmanpuolue is the name of the party in Finnish and it translates to "world's party" or "world party".
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
People on the political left, young people, people who want to make a "protest vote", people who have immigrated to Finland (colored people, people who are "different" from the people who are born in Finland)
We're looking for something to use in our Facebook site and business cards. The logo can be graphics only + separate type suggestion for name ("Maailmanpuolue") or graphics "integrated" with name. Please feel free to be creative and funny.. but in a politically respectable way :-)
