ABOUT Just Say Now:
Just Say Now is a nonpartisan, national campaign of students, law enforcement, doctors, patients, veterans and concerned citizens in support of ending our nation’s failed war on marijuana.
Launched in the fall of 2010, our campaign has offered unparalleled support to several marijuana reform initiatives across the country - including California, Arizona, Colorado and Washington. In our first year, our campaign launched nearly 30,000 calls in one weekend to voters in support of California’s Prop 19 to legalize marijuana. Our Legalize Marijuana Facebook page has nearly 1 million supporters.
Just Say Now’s work has been featured on MSNBC, FOX News, CNN, CBS, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone Magazine, TV’s “The Good Wife” and countless print and online publications. We identify both as a media organization and advocacy group working to end marijuana prohibition and the war on patients and caregivers. We regularly engage in reporting and political action in support of access to medical marijuana and marijuana legalization.
CONTEXT: The winning design will be printed on t-shirts and other swag as a way to build awareness and support for marijuana reform in 2012.
Just Say Now will choose 5 designs from this 99designs contest to be entered into a contest among Just Say Now Facebook users in celebration ofour 1 millionth Facebook “LIKE”. Our Facebook fans will vote for their favorite design and the winner’s design will be used to promote our efforts.
The speech bubble with marijuana leaf in our logo has been a prominent image in the Just Say Now campaign that emphasizes the growing national conversation around marijuana - we’d like to incorporate it if it works. The marijuana leaf iconography in general seems to really grab people’s attention, and we believe that at least should be part of the design.
If the logo itself doesn’t say JustSayNow.com, we would like a space to include the URL at the bottom.
We use the following colors in our current logo/banner; we want to stick within this family but are not married to these very specific colors. Bold and bright greens.
Dark green: #156737
Light green: #54A23F
Also important: we have traditionally used a logo set against a solid background color, but would really like to see variants both on a background color, and on white/transparent background.
