This was the first design with our first logo, the triangle with the City of Oakland tree. The triangle represented Delta (∆), which means change. This correlated with our initial mission to combat the negative perceptions about Oakland that are disseminated in the media but non-existent in the city itself. The drive behind the founding of stOAKed was to show the haters that everyone genuine from Oakland loved their city more than anything else. Oakland will always be home for so many people – and so many people that can't afford to live here anymore.
