TSA History

The TSA began under noble intentions: protect American citizens from threats of terror targeting airplane travel. However, Americans did not realize back then that real security must come at the cost of some personal liberty. Unwilling to make that sacrifice, the TSA was severely limited and could not provide the service that it was intended to create.

Looking back, it is difficult perhaps to imagine the laughable level of “security” the old TSA provided. In reality, what we used to provide was only the appearance of protection instead of the true product.

Brand Identity

The Old TSA Although the TSA was created to provide security for American citizens, we were crippled by poor implementation of that vision. The Old TSA was viewed as just another government bureaucracy subject to all that implies: lumbering and ineffective. Sadly, this was not an entirely unfair assessment. In the beginning we were to slow to adapt to evolving threats of terror, and ill-equipped to stop all but the least intelligent terrorists.

Finding Terrorists The old TSA knew precious little about American citizens. Unless a person was lucky enough to wind up on our no-fly list, we likely only knew their name and flight destination. Governmental regulations used to restrict our access to the intelligence. A new day has dawned however, and with those regulations lifted, we now have access to a wealth of data on every person moving within the borders of our great nation. These dossiers from our database show a cross-section of the American citizens that we protect.

What Government Looks Like In previous decades, the generic de facto logos of government presented the familiar image of a shield or a seal, usually with the eagle as a symbol thrown in for good measure. This uninspired “default” design of American government is linked inextricably to the old United States, and does very little to bring the image of American government into the new millennium.

The New TSA In the 21st century, the federal government realized the potential for using design to improve its image among American citizens. The lazy reliance on the shield or seal motif has been retired in favor of a new importance placed on emotional associations. The new TSA logo communicates intelligence, it communicates movement, and it promotes respect among American citizens.

The video feed of each camera is transmitted to the central TSA database. When combined with our state-of-the-art face recognition technology, we are able to effectively track the movements of every potential terrorist threat.
