Say hello to our new logo, and let us explain the reasoning behind our logo change.
One of our objectives is to raise awareness of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder through effective and accurate awareness campaigns. In recent years we have seen the OCD acronym and 'meaning' hijacked to suggest a person who is pernickety and fussy. During the next few years we want to focus some of our awareness projects to change the perception that everyone is a ‘little OCD’, highlight the D in OCD and ensure the general public understand that the D in OCD stands for Disorder, hence our new logo.
The ‘D’ is highlighted in a darker colour to emphasise the word Disorder and also show the dark places the illness can take us sometimes and the gloomy mood it leaves us feeling. We also know that OCD can be treated and can be overcome, so we left the ‘D’ slightly broken to show sufferers, that no matter how dark OCD can get there is a chance to break that cycle and break out from the Disorder.
The ‘O’ and ‘C’ are entwined to illustrate how the Obsessions and Compulsions cross over and are linked together. The ‘C’ is left slightly narrower than the 'O' to demonstrate that the obsessions are the driving force and sometimes can be more frequent than the compulsions with some aspects of OCD.
We hope that our logo can be a practical tool to help illustrate the severity of OCD and help us all raise awareness of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
