John F. Kennedy said, "War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today."
We at StandWithHonor.com are standing with Conscientious Objectors, the courageous soldiers, who dare to risk their personal freedom, livelihoods and reputations to take a stand based on the call of their conscience.
Together, we aim to inspire the world to stand with these brave few, and to spark a global dialogue about the efficacy of war and violence as a means for peace and freedom.
We also aim to support soldiers, who are questioning the authority of their superiors, and inquiring into the natural authority of their own heart, their conscience, their reason, their ability to choose.
We are revolutionaries of the heart, ready and willing to stand with Conscientious Objectors, even in the face of the ridicule of their peers, the punishment of their superiors and the indifference or blind indignation of their society.
The revolution will be televised! At StandWithHonor.com, our video portal showing soldiers taking their stand, and the rest of us standing with them! All this is made possible with the power of your design! Join us!
Primarily young American male soldiers, 18 to 25 years old. We want the site to engage them in the epic journey to revolution, much like a video game. They can interact with the site to be the real life hero, by laying down their weapons and being willing to stand alone if need be.
Secondarily, we wish for the world to witness these young men and women standing up, to be inspired by their courageous stands, and to feel called to stand with them and honor them.
While our target is American soldiers, we do not wish this to be a site exclusively aimed at Americans... so no American flags, etc. It is to appeal to soldiers around the world and a global audience.
We are happy with our current Wordpress theme, TV elements from press75.com for the basic structure. We simply desire a redesign of the theme's color scheme and graphics.
We imagine the silhouette of a soldier facing the web visitor, standing tall... and silhouettes of soldiers and others standing behind him.
Sites to be inspired by:
THIS IS A VERY SIMPLE SITE DESIGN, BUT VERY POWERFUL with a real photo... so using a photo of Victor's Army or Travis Bishop could be very powerful...
Words that encapsulate the look and feel:
honor, inspire, stand up, courage, take the power back, heart, rELOVution...
We want to see how your design can creatively use our Wordpress theme. Graphics and a branding font/design logo of "STAND WITH HONOR" are essential.
Don't want stars and stripes,. Don't want red, white and blue.
Appeal to demographic in military without being overly military. No tanks, jet fighters or battleships dominating the screen. No olive drab or camouflage backgrounds. No silhouettes with weapons. We want silhouettes that are military but not holding weapons. While there are many men and women of honor in the world's militaries, our purpose is not to honor the military. Our purpose is to honor members of the military who stand by their deep honor and conscience by refusing to take part in or support violent acts when such acts violate their conscience.
Do not want a red and black color scheme. Will symbolically appear like violent socialist revolutionary color scheme to global audience.We want something a very distinctive and impressionable brand of both the style/font/words "Stand With Honor" and a logo. We are looking for creative ideas to incorporate the words "STAND WITH HONOR" and a logo of an individual taking a stand. We are STRONGLY leaning towards a silhouette distinguished by color
