Working with Saitoti Kitasho and the Pastoral Women's Council was an absolute pleasure. They had an idea for the logo and sent me a few images. From that I was able to create several designs for them to choose from. The project I worked on was "TAPALA!" which is a Maasai word for "STOP!" I went with the common colors associated with stop: red, black, and white. The final logo consisted of a child-like handprint graphic with the word "TAPALA!" in big bold letters and the tagline "STOP! violence against women and girls" in small type below the handprint. I provided the logo in .png, .jpg, and .pdf formats in both a large (1200 x 1200 px) size and small (600 x 600 px) size. While the logo design is complete, I have volunteered to help out with any future needs they may have! Knowing that I may be playing a part in a movement taking place on the other side of the world is exciting. But the mission is what motivated me most -- helping to change the mentality of an entire culture and its the way it sees the female gender by preventing abuse and promoting education. The Maasai culture is patriarchal and considers females to be powerless, second-class citizens with a low level of intelligence. The sexual abuse and the treatment of young girls and women is de-humanizing. The Pastoral Women's Council is working hard to change the mentality of an entire population of people who have treated women the same way for hundreds and thousands of years. In 50 years, the Maasai women are likely to be ruling the world, and I can rest peacefully knowing that I played a part in that movement...however small it may be.
