QRC 10th Anniversary

Creation Date

June 9, 2015

In 2016, the Queer Resource Center at Portland State University celebrated its tenth anniversary as a resource for students, staff, and the community. In preparation for the event, I created this event logo as well as a marketing plan to go with it.

Each white symbol in the black bar is a different representation of ten.

  • “10” is an Arabic numeral.
  • “ten” is English.
  • “X” is a Roman numeral.
  • |||| |||| is tally marks.
  • “עֶשֶׂר” is feminine Hebrew.
  • “十” is Chinese and Japanese.
  • ” is two hands representing the unary system.
  • “दस” is Hindi.
  • “Ιʹ” is a Greek numeral.
  • 𓎆” is an Egyptian numeral.
  • ” (roughly approximated) is American Sign Language.

Much like every symbol within the large Q represents different communities and identities within the larger queer community, so too does each symbol for ten represent different communities and the languages spoken by each.
