After a couple of months on the back burner this renters thing is now getting ready to launch.
In November I posted about what we should call our new organisation and after much deliberation we decided on Renters United.
It was a close run thing, I personally preferred United Renters but the veto was enacted on the grounds that it sounded a little like the name of a political party that no-one wants to sound like.
Once we had a name we could get busy working out a logo, and with a friendly graphic designers help this is what we ended up with (click to enbiggen):
I’m pretty happy with this. It has a building/construction/housing feel without putting a roof on it and a activist and grassroots dimension to it as well.
I’ll be putting together a website for Renters United over the next few weeks (hopefully in time for the launch) but in the mean time we made a little holding page that goes a bit further one fleshing out the visual style we might end up with for the organisation. This is what rentersunited.org.nz looks like at the moment:
Feedback very welcome.
