After a competition which involved members of the public submitting their designs, and then a public vote on Increable.com to choose the most appropriate design, in September 2011 a symbol was chosen to represent the numerous protests in different countries which are currently calling for better democracies.
After an international voting process involving both organizations and the general public, the symbol - entitled Súmate (Join) - by designer Javier Rodríguez has been selected as winner of graphic design competition International Real Democracy Now. "For this logo, I was looking for an universal gesture which could both represent and inspire people to unite to reclaim something we all need, a real democracy. The gesture of raising your hand represents many things: to ask for help, respect, commitment, and mainly to say: present!", says the designer.
In Regards of Outraged movement, Javier says: "It is a much needed move and it would be great to get everyone involved, joining the movemente and going out to the streets to express these thoughts." A graphic designer born in Argentina who has been living in Spain for a year, Javier added that "Although it won't be easy, we must move on. And, as my compatriot Ernesto "Che" Guevara said, the present is a time for struggle; the future is ours".
