Our current logo presents a few challenges:

  • It's wider than it is high (21:16), which makes it a bit awkward for some web applications since it doesn't fit well in a square.
  • It has some very fine details (the tower, the ice cap, the water in the valleys) that don't scale down well.

List of changes:

  • Change the overall shape from a triangle to a circle.
  • Change the colour of the water to a darker blue.

  • Remove the snow cap.
  • Replace the tower and antenna with a simpler antenna symbol.
  • Redraw the mountains using simple triangular shapes.
