First tests with new Membership cards are being done. First one went to Litsa Spathi (Netherlands). Second one to Val Mark Herman (France), and some more are sent out as surprises to IUOMA-members worldwide. Since there are now 1426 members in the IUOMA it will become impossible to just send everybody a card. So We will see how to deal with that.

In the end of the 90-ies I produced 10,000 orange stickers with on it "IUOMA-member". I used them on my outgoing mail-art then and also distributed the stickers to other mail-artists to use. On some historic Mail-Art which I show here you can find out how that looked, and off course what kind of Mail-Art went out in those years

This logo was especially designed for items to be sold in the IUOMA-Shop located on the URL: http://www.cafepress.com/IUOMA. The little extra's the webshop brings will be used to send out free IUOMA-gadget into the network.
Piermario Ciani designed in 1990 this logo for the IUOMA. Later he asked me to use the logo for other uses as well. The envelope with arrows is spread quite well. Piermario Ciani sadly enough years ago already. he was a gread designer and artist.
The photo above is from the IUOMA-magazine that was published in June 1991.

In 2009 a set of 7 different Membership cards were produced and sent to IUOMA-members. Not everybody got one since it became impossible to afford the sending of almost thousand of cards. In the cards some older and new logo's were used a background. Some cards were printed in colour, some on thick coloured paper. Cards produced by Ruud Janssen
Above you see one of the logo's made by a mediadesign student from the Radius College. After a brainstorm of possible logo's I made the drawings below which she had to work out in a graphic design program. The result is used for some publications for the IUOMA.
In 1991 I tranferred a digital logo I made into a red vinyl sticket which was silkscreen printed in an edition of 5000. These stickers were sent with the first IUOMA-magazine into the nework. This sticker returned from Rosa Biagi in 2010. She saved it all that time and returned it by mail. Now it is documented for the future.
Since 2008 IUOMA has its own social network on Ning. Currently about 1400 members are active there (November 2010). To celebrate the first (700 members) and 2nd year (1400 members) these logo's were designed by Ruud Janssen to make groups to celebrate the aniversary. See also: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/
