The Resistance got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Design the Global Symbol of Protest and Resistance
Check out The Resistance's Logo design contest…
We are the resistance.
Other color requirements
The colors of the US flag are red, white, and blue. Blue is associated with left-wing politics and MAY be the primary color. Red is associated with right-wing politics and can be an accent color but should NOT be the primary color. Black is a reasonable choice. Purple may be reasonable. Orange and/or green are possible but unlikely. The symbol should be 1 color if possible, or 2 colors max. An enhanced version for web, including accent colors and gradients, would be appreciated.
Design a global symbol of protest and resistance, for viral distribution worldwide. SYMBOL + TEXT The symbol must be accompanied by the text RESISTANCE.ORG. A complementary version with hashtag text instead would be a bonus. The symbol and text should fit well on a square canvas. Please emphasize the SYMBOL and make it LARGER than the text. Also, please design a NEW symbol to represent this protest movement. Be ORIGINAL. (Do not copy an existing symbol and make a minor edit.) Remember that this is NOT a logo; it's a symbol. SHAPE, SIMPLICITY, AND SCALABILITY The symbol should be distinctive and yet simple enough to scale to small sizes and still be recognizable. It should also be simple enough to be reproducible without sophisticated printing techniques. But it should not be dull. It should look powerful on a sign or banner. It should be possible to reproduce the symbol on the web, in large-scale print, by hand, etc. It should be apparent to most viewers what the objects in the symbol are—at least after a little thought. If the objects are a head scratcher, it probably will not work. Humor is not the goal, so avoid jokes except in rare circumstances.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
The Resistance collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
