The new name, logo and identity for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum have just been unveiled, along with plans for a traveling exhibition where the public will be invited to sign steel beams to be used in the construction of the new Memorial & Museum. The new website also launched today:

“We are building a national symbol that, like the Statue of Liberty, tells us something about who we are as Americans. The re-naming of this project to the National September 11 Memorial at the World Trade Center reflects this national scope,” Memorial & Museum President and CEO Joe Daniels said. “Every day, we continue to build momentum for this campaign, helping to ensure that the events of September 11th are told to future generations. We look forward to bringing this exhibition to cities around the country.”

Graphic elements were designed by the lovely people at Number Seventeen, and you’ll remember that the memorial is being designed by Michael Arad and Peter Walker.
