Safe Bars, a project of Collective Action for Safe Spaces (CASS) and Defend Yourself, trains and empowers staff at alcohol-serving establishments to recognize and respond to incidents of sexual harassment and assault among staff and patrons. It was a relatively new program that needed a logo and a few creative assets.
When the Executive Director of CASS reached out to me, she requested that the logo feature Washington DC in some way. We went with a version that included the shape of DC in a yellow diamond, similar to yellow warning signs on the road, to represent safety.
I also created a sharable graphic for social media and a window decal that bars could put in their windows, showing that they've been through Safe Bars training.
Following the creation of this project, a separate program called the Safe Bar Collective was formed. I designed the logo for this program as well. Visit safebarcollective.org for more details.
