Dr. Equivalent the Incredible @drequivalent


Attempted to make a symbol for The Fediverse. Something we can all stand under no matter the software in use. Is it any good? Is it shit? Let me know.

@mmn @lain @Gargron Piece-by-piece:
1) five equal nodes, each one of them interconnected with each other, forming a five-pointed star, uniting us kinda like one nation. Connections are overlayed in a way that there's no "priority" of one over the other;
2) a large circle in the background is a Earth, meaning that the whole federation is global;
3) laurels as a symbol of peace. And yes, I totally lifted if from the UN flag.

@Curator also dunno if this thing is up your park, but check it out too, I think.

@drequivalent @lain @gargron Gimme the ascii art representation and I'll consider it.

I like the inverted Satanism in it. No, sorry, I like this kind of efforts.

@drequivalent I worry Facebook-lovers would say the Fediverse is a place where evil people summon the Satan. Because it really looks like a summoning sign, no offense though. :) I appreciate your efforts and like that work but I worry it's not "neutral enough".

@drequivalent I mean, the best symbols are apparently kind of… meaningless symbols. Like G for Google, apple with a bite for Apple, a horse for Porsche.

@pskosinski Well, I wanted not just a logo, butmore like a coat of arms. Those tend to convey ideas of the nation's values, you know.

@pskosinski Let them say it. First, it will get the eyes turning to our side, second, it will show how much of morons they are.

Okay, nobody seems to need my Fediverse flag or even particularly like it. Time to take it off the pin and move on, I guess.
Sad, I've put work into it.

@drequivalent @mmn @lain @Gargron thought that this one is cool but heavy. Too many elements, I guess.
