Our goal is to assist occupiers with logistical operations and communication of their message by getting as many open-source, well-designed, freely-available signs on the street as possible.
If you are an on-the-ground occupier, or supporting an occupation, you can use the following steps to get usable signs on the street quickly and cheaply.
Find -> Print -> Demonstrate
1. Look through this site for protest signs, logistical signs, infographics, and icons.
If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you can request a specific design and our network of volunteer designers will take it on as soon as possible.
2. Print out the signs on-site, or contact someone who can print and deliver them for you. We support several formats for each image we produce, namely 8.5″ x 11″ fliers, 25.5″ x 33″ mosaics of 9 letter pages in a 3×3 grid, and scalable graphics for large-format printing (banners, etc). Find a printer near you on inkerlinker.com.
3. Use the signs at a protest or occupation, and hold them up high! If you do end up printing and using some of these resources, please tag them with occupydesign on Flickr – they’ll show up in the photostream on this site and help document how they’re being used around the world.
4. Email us at email@example.com with any new request and we will do our best to match you with a designer.
