Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
VotingBlocks is a platform for organizing people to vote together on key issues. By pooling votes together into a unified block, the organizers of a VotingBlock will use the promise / threat of their member's votes to apply pressure on US lawmakers. We stand in direct competition to corporate lobbyists who use large pools of capital to influence lawmakers through promised campaign contributions.
From a member's perspective, you join a block in order to receive a "voting scorecard" on election day. The scorecard contains a list of researched, fact checked candidates who support the issues you care about. Members of a VotingBlock vote together for the pre-selected candidates and thereby amplify their influence. The larger the VotingBlock, the more power the group can wield.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We'd like to illustrate how VotingBlocks can influence lawmakers by rallying a large group of people to vote in unison. These lawmakers are currently controlled by a minority of wealthy donors who funnel money into PACs. These PACs spend that money on advertising and other tactics to sway voters leading up the election. We want to instantly convey how a VotingBlock can wield substantial power and defeat the Political Action Committees (PACs) and their millions.
The illustration should be modern, clean and avoid traditional symbols of politics, democracy and government. No american flags, eagles, sketches of the founding fathers. We are taking a disruptive approach to politics and need to reflect this distinction.
The audience should see this illustration and feel empowered. It needs to convey action and results. This is not a petition or donation page.
It should also feel fun and approachable, we aren't trying to scare people here.
