I came up with the idea recently of inventing a Tet Zoo logo, and a few friends and regular readers said that this was a good idea. Soooo….
I decided to incorporate just three creatures (any more would be too crowded), and the ones I chose can be regarded as Tet Zoo superstars or regulars: a ground hornbill (representing Diapsida or even Reptilia), a babirusa (representing Synapsida), and a toad (representing Lissamphibia). I wanted to have more wording round the margins, but (a) that’s probably not a good idea, as the logo would become too cluttered if there were any more text, and (b) CorelDRAW – the software I was using – doesn’t exactly make it easy to add, move or modify text that sits on a curved line. You may have noticed that I’ve added a new banner that incorporates the logo. I KNOW it’s too small to be seen properly.
Now that a logo exists, time to start slapping it on merchandise. I’m thinking t-shirts, badges… well, that’s it. I’ll definitely start using the logo quite a bit – perhaps (as here) in similar fashion to the ‘Research Blogging’ icon (and, yeah, thanks to Dave Munger I’ve finally figured out how to use ResearchBlogging).
Let me know what you think! I’m also toying with the idea of creating some sort of badge of ‘Tet Zoo endorsed sites’.. not sure how that would work though. Any ideas?
