French graphic artist Jean Jullien has created a symbol
that is likely to become the most iconic and widely shared image following the
Paris terrorist attacks. Created in an act of spontaneity, it has become a worldwide symbol of solidarity. The symbol is clear proof of the power of visual imagery and how a small but clever change can make such a powerful difference and become iconic in it's own right.
His reworking of the peace symbol cleverly replaces the bomb-like line structure from the original logo with that of the Eiffel tower to create a memorable poignant symbol. The logo has gone viral across social media and has already made its way onto t-shirts.
