Concepting

Our Concpeting phase has concluded. We took everything we learned during the Research phase and used those insights to develop our own creative ideas to address the challenge question. Check out the fresh thinking and head over to the current phase to join our collaborative efforts.

Using all the great Inspiration that was submitted, this stage was all about crafting logo concepts to meet the Challenge Brief (we had the whole top bar to play with).

People could build on Themes, specific Inspirations or other Concepts by bookmarking them and dragging them into their Concept. Alternatively they could just to browse the Concepts as they were uploaded and applaud or comment (this also added to their Collaboration DQ points).

It was important for the crowd to bear in mind our openIDEO Principles: Inclusive, Community-centered, Collaborative, Optimistic, Transparency and Always in Beta.

A bit of an amalgamation of things – a heroic typeface (ha, get it?), a bit of grime, and my favorite Tim Brown drawing!

Logo illuminates (intensifies) based on the amount of activitiy / users on the site at any given time. This "status" projection encourages users to engage and gives comfort in knowing that we are collectively present (or not).

The image of the flock of birds seems like a nice metaphor for open ideo---they are all independent, but they align to fly in the same direction, and it's hard to really understand how they get to where they go---they just do.

Your typical typographic figure/ground game... Many other variants to explore here, and haven't really looked at whether it plays nice with the IDEO logo. But it's so fecking simple!
