Human Rights Logos

I was at Isla de Nebz's place when I noticed this post. I kind of thinking; why not join. Nothing will be lost except some wasted effort on my part and perhaps a depleted ego if my work isn’t nominated. So I did some research and came up with these three logos.

The first one represents the genders and the diverse races. The “scale” stands for equality and/or justice and the blue circle symbolizes our world.

I modified the second logo to include children and the four colors (red, yellow, black and white) indicates the four major races. Both logos were titled: “Equality in a Diverse World”.

The third logo is quite simple. I combined the first letter of “Human” and “Rights” and put in the middle an abstract representation of “man” and “scale”.

As I browsed some of the other entries, I was surprised to find out I wasn’t the only one who had an idea of combining “man” and “scale” in their logos. Isn’t that amazing. Given a set of rules, humans will think matching ideas and create almost identical symbols.

If you have time, please visit this site. I know its quite tough browsing all the logos considering there are more than 8,000 entries as of now. But if you happen to like my logos, please don’t forget to push the “heart” icon at the upper right hand corner of the drawing. But before you do that, you have to “log-in” or “sign-up” first (FB or Tweeter accounts are accepted) or your “vote” won’t be registered.

Thank you.
