We are very grateful to BlogDogIt (Michael (masodo) DeBurger) for some very appreciated contributions to the Project Put movement.
BlogDogIt found his way to the Project PUT blog since we put his video to use in one of our posts about the Pitch In to Clean Up America Campaign produced by the US Brewers of America in the 1970’s:
BlogDogIt appreciated the Project PUT effort and took an interest. He made us an incredible suite of logos which we love and will use to represent the movement:
He used this theme to create logos, banners, buttons, avatars. It’s amazing and overwhelming what he did to support the project of complete strangers whose project he believed in. Thank you BlogDogIt!
You can see his creations on his website:
And, it’s not like BlogDogIt just whipped it up real quick just for fun! Thought and meaning are built into this wonderful logo, as BlogDogIt puts it:
To give you a little background on the thought process for your logo; I can tell you my thinking began by being mindful of the Recycle Logo and trying to avoid anything remotely like “Pitch-In”
I wanted it to be simple, bold and recognizable. I started with a few sketches and settled on the three Arrows design. The “P” arrow representing the looking down and seeing the trash. The “U” arrow standing for the physical lifting up of the trash. The “T” arrow symbolizes the dropping of the trash into the proper receptacle. (Feel free to interpret any way you see fit.)
The original reason for putting the base logo into a circle was to keep any future “cutting-out” of the logo (stickers, badges, etc.) as simple as possible. Once the circle was drawn though the color choices came naturally. Blue representing Water, Green representing Land. and White representing Sky (clouds). I was thinking that in the television commercial you could probably have a picture of the Earth “morph” into the PUT Logo rather successfully (but I digress.)
And that wasn’t all. He procured for us WWW.PROJECTPUT.ORG, so that if anyone types this in, it gets routed to this blog. Like Pinnochio dreaming about becoming a real boy, when Eloise and I are sophisticated, organized and developed enough, we’ll take it over and make a real-live webpage for Project PUT. Again, Thank you BlogDogIt!
