IUOMA logo - 3D pen - set of 6

This is the total set that I made till today. Six logo's for the IUOMA, all made with the 3D pen. They are made of ABS or PLA plastic to test the pen and colours. They all have a front and backside (signed with date , name on backside).

I even made a special box to fit them in, since this box will be part of an exhibition somewhere in the future.

IUOMA logo with the 3D pen

For a workshop I gave at a college in Breda I taught teachers how to use the pen. For myself I experimented with designing IUOMA logo's where you can instantly test the colours and have a look at the result from different angles. Looks quite well, and also is interesting to have these as an object you can use.

New logo by Joel Cohen and Jack Lattemann - USA

found this new logo on Facebook by Joel Cohen with the message: " This is a new image for an IUOMA address label, rubber stamp and whatever else... Image by Ray Johnson and Carl Chew. Design by Mike Dickau. Art Direction and Production by The Sticker Dude & Jack Lattemann. Coming soon to your in/mail boxes!" So I will wait and see what happens..... Love the image as it shows the essence of IUOMA. Just a keyhole.

Made a few dozen of these stamps and sent them into the network. So expect some prints on mail-art pieces soo. If you want one too, just send me a message and when still one is left you might be the lucky one.

Welcome card by Mim (version 3) - USA


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.
