Lol @Yannick-Roy
I agree that the logo can be more aggressive looking. I think the point I'm trying to make is that we should keep in mind to have simple logos. Minimalistic design is actually hard.
@conorrussomanno That's a cool image for the website

@conorrussomanno oh I've seen this. These are real neurons right

I think those are real neurons
I googled “neuron"
:P

p.s. I’m using this as my placeholder logo for NeuroTechNYC
until we finalize the NeuroTechX logo

Those definitely look like they could be real neutrons at any rate. I like the glob design but it looks more like a molecule than a neutron or glia

here are a few neuron designs I have in my tattoo idea folder if they're at all helpful
couldn't figure out how to share filtered search results so I just took a screen shot lol

You gonna have a tattoo of NeuroTechX ? That's cool.
Devoted. I like it.

Wait, Yannick..
you don’t have one already?

I feel like I should or I'll be left out of the wolf pack.

I was planning on getting a minimalistic neuron tattoo... neurotechx may or may not have just ruined my idea -- ... at least I don't have it already!

Or wherever you are going to put an eeg electrode on your body

That's colourful... but I think it will shrink even less well than the original hex design
FerEph
@FerEph
Jul 30 2015 16:41
If we take the glia mario drew with a brain outline around it inside the hexagon in a flat minimalistic design, will be a good idea to try

I kinda like the unique design... not sure exactly what it represents tho
FerEph

Its nice but too complicated
What id we remove the center horizontal line
And instead the oval shaped center we make it circle
Sydney Swaine-Simon
@syswsi
Jul 30 2015 17:02
I find it simple as a design.I think it would scale as well for the favicon

(abstract rep of 3 major brain pathways)

technically two I guess since it's just a cross section of the cc, not actually two separate pathways..

some more variants incase you like the general concept. and there goes my lunch break. fun times lol

Jul 30 2015 19:08
some of your concepts inspired me
I used the infinity symbol to include the "X" in a subtle way, the sinus wave (with sharper angle) and also to represents the on-going progress for human
HuaHo
@HuaHo
Jul 30 2015 19:13
in a more abstract way, you may see the 2 brain hemispheres illustrated by the diamond shape forming each side of the infinity loop
Yannick Roy
@royyannick
Jul 30 2015 19:15
Maybe we can define more the X and the 'hemispheres / brain concept' ? Cuz I see all of them, but I'm quite biased. The Inifity if pretty clear tho.
is*
Melian
@Sciencelaer
Jul 30 2015 19:23
I think it's ok for that to be a subtle implication. It does, after all, say NeurotechX right below
HuaHo
@HuaHo
Jul 30 2015 19:23
as most of our feedback wanted something simple, so by adding other shapes or lines to "define more" the X and the hemispheres we might lose the simplicity of the logo
plus by having a subtle representation, it gives us the freedom to tell different stories and also let people have their own interpretation
Melian
@Sciencelaer
Jul 30 2015 19:27
and if we eventually change the branding we might still be able to keep the logo ;-)

In parallel, I'm trying to convert my bullet points into a killer description for the NeuroTechX landing page and as most of you know, writing is not my best skill :p I don't know what's the best way of doing it, but here is the document with the bullet points (lots are missing, but for the initial description, I think that enough material is there : https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JAxUldT-26Wqk_VLwZx8f8Ml47QhqjOkg33JrARrBas/edit) I have to go, so I'll be back on it later tonight. Meanwhile if anyone feels like writing a description paragraph from which we can iterate, so we can put it there : http://neurotechx.github.io/

I still vote for gial cell blob marion did like compared to this X it is more attractive easier to explain and relates to the community. Just my vote

@syswsi
Jul 30 2015 20:33
@hua awesome!
I like the simplicity of the design
And matching of colour with the x in neurotech x

I don't know if we can put the hexagon, the gial, the X and the pathways in a poll for hackers and c. Members to vote...
