isn't' that a solar panel shed? can you paint that?

yes, any color scheme will be similar to *something* , but for a local group unaffiliated with the local university it seems in poor taste. if we *were* affiliated....


OK guys, Paul has a bikeshed opinion at this time, so here's a CLASSY, MODERN RED BADGE that fits with the current scheme without much more fuss. I can do redo the favicon as well, but perhaps not until I'm back from vacation.

And don't anyone say it's too much like the Dodge brand. :lol:

Yep. Lossy JPEG format.

Yes, artifacts. For web graphics, I aim at keeping them to 20 kbs in size. I can do an EPS too. Here is the same kind of thing, but centralized highlighting:

there's some multi layered spray applications that appear to be viable as well, including one that is effectively clear to visible light. they're in the tens of thousands of dollars a gallon at the moment as they're in r&d, but more or less, you put down a first layer, tie in a connection, put down a second layer, then a third with a connection, and a top coat, and the dented up geometro or whatever is now a solar cel with decent (although not ultra high efficiency) power production, and the ability to be dented and have a crack in part of the paint and not loose everything. one group was starting to look at self healing films, to further improve durability.

is the logo available in a vector format? i'd like to get it into autocad or inventor to play with some solids stuff.

Metis, I'll mail you a b/w logo in EPS format. You can color it or whatever. I think I have your email.
