Occupy.com sifted through more than 1,500 entries, which were submitted through 99designs.com, before selecting the winner. "The creative energy of the contest naturally went towards the circle -- It's iconic, it's endlessly reproducible, it's infinitely inviting and inclusive and it symbolizes the connectedness of all of us," occupier David Sauvage wrote in an e-mail to SF Weekly.
Naturally, the lucky designer is getting criticism from some sore losers; at least one left a comment online, calling the chosen design a "very expensive CIRCLE."
Maybe. But that circle won the designer a $1,000 award, and that's a nice chunk of change for a 99 percenter!
