Appleton native creates 'blue fist' logo

APPLETON, Wis. - An Appleton native is the creator of the iconic "blue fist" graphic in the shape of Wisconsin used in spring protests at the state Capitol.

Graphic artist Carrie Worthen graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She now lives and works in Los Angeles, but she kept in touch with members of the AFL-CIO and, in February, the union asked her to take the germ of the fist idea and make it stand out.

"To me it needed to be bold and clear and loud and simple," Worthen told Wisconsin Public Radio.

Worthen said she was not paid for her work on the blue fist design.

And as a graphic designer for 25+ years I can say with certainty, it is worth exactly what they paid for it.

That’s not art,it’s a Socialist propaganda symbol.

The union couldn’t pay her for it because that would have eaten into their trip money for the quarterly strategy meeting in Honolulu.

I know that a lot of the “art” I’m seeing these days is amateur photoshop work at best. The sort of thing I throw together in a few minutes.

People seemed to be more expressive in the 60's.

If conservatives are referred to as “teabaggers” by the MSM, wouldn’t it be fair if they called this group “fisters”......?

Union goons with a fist for a symbol works perfectly in following Obama’s marching orders of getting in peoples’ faces who disagree with you.

So much for that red diaper doper baby “uniting this country”. He’s not a peaceful man. He is a deceiver who mocks Christians while claiming to be one himself only he doesn’t seem to honor his faith, he seems more smitten by the contributions of muslims throughout history and has stated that Jesus Christ is NOT the only way to salvation.

I think the raised fist logo started with the Boxer Rebellion around 1900, but it is popular with the Leftists who are down with the struggle.

The blue fist looks like something straight out of a communist propaganda headquarters. Very unAmerican.

If the Tea Party used a ‘fist’ logo, the commies would all be shouting, “Violence! A fist is a symbol of threatening violence if we disagree with them!!”
