I like the idea. So here's a first suggestion:
What about a Logo consisting of the pure name?
The letters of FREE should be very large, and the other words small 
enough to fit into the same typographical length.
Then, it could be possible to arrange FREE in a square and -  with a 
little distance - the other worts in a square of the same size beneath FREE.
So it would be a very simple, pure form of two squares in the proportion 
of 1 (width) to 2 (height).
The two squares could also be arranged side by side instead of beneath 
of each other.
