Occupy Wall Street Branding
OWS is, if nothing else, a colorful hodgepodge – and not just of people, ideas, and ideologies. There's a surprising mix of images, taglines, and other elements which, together, make up what was a still inchoate OWS "brand."
I was tapped by New York Magazine's Daily Intel Blog to share my (anonymous) Madison Avenue-esque perspective on the words and visuals that make up OWS. Grades were assigned to show which signs stood out from those that should have been left at home.
