the first name that came to mind was Autastic - combination of Autistic and fantastic and then perhaps a logo could be created in such a way that the two words could be merged so that the main name was prominent
Autastics is already taken by an Autistic group in San Francisco:
http://www.autastics.org/

Since you are in Cambs, perhaps you are interested in Autscape 2012?
It will be in Suffolk, in July:
http://www.autscape.org/
They may need help with their website.

It seems like there is an image that is commonly used with autism: multicolored puzzle pieces. Yet I'm rather fond of the neurodiversity images that incororate multiple colored / styled brains.

So, why not put the two together?
The puzzle pieces are usually used by curebies.
The Neurodiversity movement usually opposes the puzzle pieces:

The Neurodiversity movement tends to use the multi-colored infinity symbol:

I'm thinking to make the AutWorld title very large, crisp and bold (in white with a very solid black outline) In front of a cloud of multicolored brains that will form a border for the title. With the "celebrating neurodiversity blahstuff" byline floating underneath the cloud.
Great! Go for it!

I wonder why... :)


I like the puzzle pieces, but I may interpret them differently than others. Life before my diagnosis was a puzzle, and collected all these little pieces from my experience trying to to solve the mystery. When I found out about my AS, all the pieces came flying together. My life made sense for the first time.

The puzzle pieces aren't going anywhere. If they have a negative connotation, it is up to us to take the symbol from those who would misuse it and make it our own.

At this event, a bunch of puzzle pieces will come flying together in unity. What are bunch of puzzle pieces all put together? One solid, unified, and harmonious picture.

Bump! :lol:

If we are going for multi-colored, let's make sure it doesn't look like a gay pride event. I have no issues with gay pride, I just want to make sure people get what we are about.

ok, here is a quick sketch of the Brainstorm idea:

[edit: changed to better quality pic]

I just kind of whipped this together in a few hours with inks and brushes. The paper is lousy, bled the ink a lot, but I didn't want to waste the good Bristol board on a sketch.

I think the idea was to screenprint a large poster eventually? Wwhich in turn could be scanned and printed en masse, and a couple drawn logos to scan and use for marketing handouts and web stuff.

Wasn't sure what to write in any of the text regions, since we don't seem to have a consensus yet, just a lot of waffling back and forth right now.

I used the simplest thing I could think of that's been mentioned for the subtitle. "Keep it simple, stupid" is a golden rule for poster design.

Sorry the camera isn't real great.

The "autism community" is mainly professionals and parents.

We are the "Autistic community".

kenG, I was under the impression from Alex's original posts that a big part of the fest was bridging the gap between the Autistic Community and potential employers and regular old people. More of a "hey yalls, this is who we are" than a "this is for us who are like each other" thing. That would be "Autism" Community, then wouldn't it?

Right now I have four finished logos, but I lack the equipment to actually make them into jpegs or even get them up here, so I'll just explain them and see if anyone likes my ideas.

Logo A is a big brain with a neuron right smack in the middle, axon like words spell out autworld 2012. I did this with a pop art style.

Logo B is essentially the famous optical illusion where two people face each other but in the middle it looks like a vase. One person is colored with multicolored puzzle pieces and the other is checkered. Autworld goes in the middle.

Logo C is more commercial, a puzzle square arranged sort of like Steve jobs next logo.

Logo D is a simplified owl, done with Chinese calligraphy like brush strokes and ink. Autworld is done in a beijing Olympic font.

I had a blast brainstorming these ideas. Hope you like them, and if i do get the chance I will post them up here:)


Ps... And burnbridge? That logo of yours is wonderful!!
