Who done it? (Who designed the logo?) Did it get multiple contributors?

I like it! Where will it be used?
Ensign Tyr, First Assistant Chief Engineering Officer
Senior Chief Petty Officer Zisa, Assistant Chief Medical Officer
Lieutenant Junior Grade Coeus, Assistant Chief Science Officer
Cadet Boudica, First Assistant Chief Helm Officer

There were several entries and some people entered more than one design - all of which were considered as individual entries.

It was an interesting contest - some people had tried to represent as many of the different sims as possible in their design, but that did run the risk of ending up cluttered and hard to distinguish the individual items when it's being used as a small icon. The winner was a smooth, stylish design that worked in both colour and B&W and when shrunk right down.

And the winning designer was... Tavey.

Apologies on behalf of we judges for not doing the declaration sooner. I think we were all waiting for each other!

In terms of where and when it'll be used, I'm not completely sure myself. I presume we'll have a revamp of some of the SLA images (www.slasims.com) and links from other sites. Not sure if it'll include the items we have for sale with CafePress, but I've bought myself a mug with the current design while stocks last, just in case...

;-)

Thanks, Azaria!
