Here’s a new iteration on the logo:
This is how it looks in the webpage:

And a simplified icon version (I can make it more pixel perfect):

A little explanation:

The logo is a play on the publication-left, annotations/discussion-right design of PeerLibrary. The triangles on the right match the triangles in the frontpage background, which, at least to me, remind me of the surface of the brain. The whole logo in fact is a play on the left-right hemispheres of the brain, while also being in the shape of a book. It connects science with publications, which is what we’re primarily about.

I think it’s good for a start, but I don’t mind if somewhere along the way we iterate more or replace it holistically altogether.

Yeah, I’ll iterate more on the web network and see what minimized versions I come up with.

#1 is pretty fresh, conceptually and aesthetically. Props! :-)

I scaled it down to 160px wide and it looked okay, but Mitar makes an important point. Could we try fewer lines and zoom a bit into the graph, maybe?

For me #1 looks too complicated. :-( Think about scaling. It should work
both on small stickers to big t-shirts. Where is minimalism?


+1 on the first

the first is really beautiful.

Finally, here are the vector variations of concept #4:

But I went and tried to minimize it further and came down to something
closer to a black variation of #6:

Here it is in smaller sizes:

And white variations

Let me know if you want to proceed with this.

Sounds good, i'll prepare variations on #4. They will be done in
vectors so no worries about svgs.

Tony, Rodrigo, Mitar, and I like 4.

Would you like to develop it further?

I'd be willing to create an SVG image of it

Here are some of my concepts. Let me know if any go into the right
direction and I can create more variations on them.

One idea. We could make logo very old school, combine P and L and then
do various ornaments around. :-)

I am just not sure how will this align with our minimalistic design.


This is too abstract for me to comment yet. :-) Will leave to others to
comment. :-)


I dig the ASCII is are the edges and vertices just to symbolize the

Yep, I meant to minimally symbolize that annotations are linked with the
publication and with themselves. (In cloudspeak, "interconnectedness.")
