,



For the quark logo contest we have been asked to start a thread that explains how we arrived at our design decision so here goes Smiley

Of course the first thing I did was research what exactly a quark was and learned that there are six types of quarks, known as flavors: up, down, strange, charm, bottom, and top.  Up, down, strange being the standard 3.

Searching thru images of these I came up with these images as a good reference point







The Reuleaux triangle shape seemed to be very much part of the quark identification along with the already popular visualization of quark structure of proton which is at the center of the current logo.

I made a rough out image that incorporated these ideas.



After that I looked into how to add the colors associated with quarks which I put onto a mock up t-shirt
I wanted the image to have a simplicity that scaled well when made small and still distinguishable as a smartphone icon.



The image carries the 3 basic quark colors in a concise way.

I also decided to try a colorization that conveyed all 6 quark component colors



and finally I have a physical coin representation that I did.



So I'm not sure if any of these ideas will be used by the quark programmers but I am very happy with what I came up with as a possible re-branded logo.

The was some confusion on another forum as to whether my logo embodied "9 rounds of hashing from 6 hashing functions."

I created this quick colourization to show that it in fact has 9 fields that can be colourized to meet whatever need.
