Education Program features new visual identity
Participants in the Wikipedia Education Program are now able to create logos and other
designs for country, city, university, or other regional groups through a do-it-yourself
manual and logo assets. The new visual identity for the program, designed by David Peters,
allows a theme to permeate the entire program, while allowing individual regions to create
their own logos with colors or symbols that have meaning for that region. The concept is
based on the highly successful Wikipedia 10th Anniversary party designs. Learn more and
get started designing your own logo!
