The Fourth of July celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which of course led to the American Revolution. But that’s not the only notable revolution – for centuries, the people have stood up against oppressors and revolted when necessary. The bloodiest path to liberty commands respect and is the foundation of solidarity between many people. The deeply ingrained loyalties that follow a successful revolution are what compels many companies to craft complete marketing campaigns that revolve around the concept, and entire organizations are built based on the idea of revolution. While these companies and organizations might not have to persevere sacrifice and bloodshed, they do promote the idea that what they offer or are striving for is different and better than the status quo. There are revolutionary designs that depict scenes from the American and other revolutions, there are revolutionary designs that changed the world; then, there are revolutionary designs that are created simply to promote the idea of revolution for companies and organizations. Here are 10 excellent examples of revolutionary design.
