Nanalog, or how to make a logo that will surprise
There are many ways to stand out from the competition.
The simplest and most correct way will be to do something unique and surprising. This definitely will not be forgotten.
When we first started our thinkit.ru project , we, like all blog keepers and creators, had problems attracting new authors who can write cool and interesting articles. We tried to interest them with prizes, money, and even hell knows what ...
For a long time it seemed to us that this it-blog would live only on the basis of articles that we will write ourselves. Many read to us, but nobody wanted to write.
After some time, the situation changed. People interested in our materials reached us. Then they began to write themselves.
Thanks to these people, we have a whole series of articles about nanotechnologies so fashionable nowadays. The guys from TTI SFU who work with NANOfab told the human language about these same "nanotechnologies", and as examples we made a nanologotype for our blog and recorded a unique video with etching this logo with an ion beam.
Here are our nano logos:
This is for the blog:
And this one for our design studio:
Here is the video that was made during the etching process:
A few explanations - the installation on which all this was done is called the FEI Nova NanoLab 600 with a very wide range of capabilities and tasks, one of the directions of which is the method of studying structures and the formation of nanoscale objects using focused ion beams (FIP). It will be tough to describe the principle of operation even in brief, but the idea is that sharply focused galium ions bombard the substrate in a nudalous place where partial removal of material and surface amorphization take place.
Here are some photos of Nanofab. Really impressive?
That's how we became the owners of a unique nano-logo, which we are very proud of. And thinkit.ru regularly attracts those who are interested in everything new and technologically advanced.
