DJ Stout on Obama’s stimulus package logo

DJ Stout was invited to rebrand the logo of President Obama’s administration Recovery and Reinvestment Act for a feature in Monday’s issue of USA Today. Here’s what he had to say:

“The most important part of the identity that they have now is the Web address. In (the logo’s) current form, it is getting lost and actually looks like an afterthought,” says designer Stout. “Our solution gets rid of the old-fashioned and overused icons of leafy plants and outdated machinery cogs and gets to the modern heart of the message. The Obama administration wants you to go to the website to find out about the recovery effort. That is, if you even give a hoot.”

  3. The subsequent time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to read, but I really thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may repair in the event you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

  4. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  8. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing web sites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It?s the old what goes around comes around routine.
