An Ongoing Occupation

A year on from the launch of The Occupied Times, the visual communication behind the Occupy movement remains as important as ever. Occupy St Pauls, the first ‘occupation’ to take place in London, began in October of last year (2011) and also marked the arrival of a supporting newspaper, The Occupied Times of London, designed by Tzortzis Rallis and Lazaros Kakoulidis. The publication was originally produced on-site (from a tent) as a weekly title, which settled into an A3 broadsheet size and is now produced to a 24-page monthly format with a magazine-style front cover. Set up at the beginning of this year, Occupy Design and its off-shoots – the Occuprint project and Occupier poster publication – have contributed to the distribution of the organisation’s message and also helped to define a visual presence for the movement. This was strengthened further when Occupy London also acquired a logo courtesy of designer Jonathan Barnbrook.
