Walt Whitman Initiative

 

The Walt Whitman Initiative is a nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting New Yorkers of all ages and backgrounds to America's Poet through Whitman-related events and activities in and around Manhattan.

 

The following identity was proposed to the initiative through multiple meetings and presentations. The spirit of the logo and supporting collateral captures the ambiguous and multi-faceted, lively spirit of Walt Whitman.
