The winning design will embody my mission, vision, hopes and dreams with elegance—pleasingly ingenious and simple; neatness.
Dr. Zimbardo, a world renowned social psychologist who studies good and evil, expresses his need for real-world heroes:
Evil has a ripple effect, the tendency for others to behave the same.
If evil can ripple, so can good—And heroes ripple good.
Zimbardo defines a hero as someone who acts on behalf of others in need or in defense of a moral cause.
Inspired by Zimbardo's idea of a hero, I created my own moral cause:
The 16 Heroes.
Growth requires people to discover the double-edged nature of their personality.
The symbol of a double-edged sword is a core idea in my mission;
Heroes have preferred means of acting on behalf of others, and defending moral causes.
For example, to one hero, acting on behalf of others can be symbolized as a sword; alternatively, defending a moral cause can be represented as a shield.
In this case, all swords and shields—or favorite tool—have a double-edged quality to them:
One edge helps you, and the other harms you.
In the context of a literal double-edge sword, the goal is to hone your weapon:
Learning to sharpen the edge that helps you, and
blunt the edge that harms you.
-Logo symbolizes the nature of a double-edged effect, i.e., the ability to stop time, at the cost of your health; for every minute you stop time, you lose 1 year.
--Realistically, the shield gives you the ability to defend moral causes, but you explode emotionally if someone insults your value, i.e., feminism, Bernie Sanders, and Blacklivesmatter causes.
-A logo that represents different groups, like the MBTI and 16 Personalities logo.
--Attached is a shield with a lightning symbol. The shield is split into 4 areas.
---Dr. Berens defines four human temperaments—or heroes in my case:
Catalyst - Diplomatic Skill Set
Theorist - Strategic Skill Set
Stabilizer - Logistical Skill Set
Improviser - Tactical Skill Set
Each temperament has different psychological needs associated with their talents and values.
It would be amazing to see each temperament elegantly represented in the shield, especially if the colors embody their nature.
Lastly, please submit designs in different colors (all black, all white, not sure what this is called), but the logo must work well with a large hero area.
Reference this site's logo for what I'm talking about:
More about the temperaments:
Temperament: a person's or animal's nature, especially as it permanently affects their behavior.
My temperament is Catalyst:
The core needs are for the meaning and significance that come from having a sense of purpose and working toward some greater good.
They need to have a sense of unique identity. They value unity, self-actualization, and authenticity.
People of this temperament prefer cooperative interactions with a focus on ethics and morality.
They tend to trust their intuition and impressions first and then seek to find the logic and the data to support them.
Given their need for empathic relationships, they learn more easily when they can relate to the instructor and the group.
