Means of Exchange is a website which will profile ways people can trade and exchange goods and services without the need to use money (bartering, favours, mutual exchanges, local currencies/vouchers, etc). It's about raising awareness of, and promoting, financial self-sufficiency in an age of economic uncertainty. The project will have an app and we're looking for an icon which conveys the spirit of the initiative. The icon will be used on Facebook, Twitter, app stores, etc.
¿Qué te inspira y qué diseño imaginas para tu empresa?
The message we'd like to try and convey is one of self-sufficiency, community support, community, empowerment, helping and supporting one another, etc. We'd like it to be striking, in a classic icon style (as per those used in the Apple App Store, for example). The icon should convey a sense of "exchange", "connecting" or "co-operating" but not have any words in it. Once we have our app name sorted we'll apply the text separately ourselves.
