The Landscape of Hope logo, created by David Hall, is a take on the universal symbol for wifi. The two hand-drawn lines and ink splat for the traditional circle represent artistic creation, and the project’s ethos of using art and the creation of art amongst young people to help counter online harassment, bullying and hate. The barbed wire line represents this online hate, however the two hand-drawn bars safely protect the user – art protects us and creates a safe space – from online bullying.
The shape of the overall logo, starting at the bottom, gradually expands and gets bigger – not only does this respect the original symbol, and its meaning of wifi signal spreading outwards – but this represents the ripple effect ones actions, behaviour and language have online. They can often start small, and grow exponentially.
Ultimately, this logo will be seen as a fusion of mobility, online presence, creativity, and protection.
