Welcome card by Mim (version 3) - USA


IUOMA 3D


playing with the IUOMA letters to form 3D experiments for a new logo. Will bring something new in the near future.

IUOMA letter LOGO's


With some new letters I started the first experioments for logo's. This one is laying them on one of my drawings where I can select any form I want.


Sometimes the play gives strange forms. The I fits in the U, and (below) the M can also function as the Sum sign (a math symbol) that changes the message completely.


a last sample with some more letters gives even the fealing of a mathematical sollution for the network:

Historic IUOMA photos


With the year 2013 coming closer I have been digging into the historic archives of the IUOMA to document some details of the past. The logo above is quite known in the mail-art network. In 1990 it was designed by Piermario Ciani (Italy) for the IUOMA and has been used ever since.


Lon Spiegelman (USA) designes also some logos for the IUOMA. His favorite round logos are also wellknow. He made them for several mail-artists and organisations.  I even made a rubberstamp of one of the logos (leaving out the year) which is still used.

 
In the ART-STRIKE years the IUOMA also took its position and declared against it. The formal statement from the archives now located in Breda, Netherlands.
 
 

The list of people with special functions inside the IUOMA as published in the first IUOMA magazine in 1991.

The designs work so well. Would make some great cards for sure....
