Steve Juras, formerly the creative director at Chicago-based Mode Project, helped create the new emblem that will be displayed on projects funded by the stimulus package.

Juras says the White House told him it wanted something that wasn't too governmental, that was somewhat retro in feel, and that would give people the sense that progress was being made.
