Kamizu commented that the version of the logo she's been using with her embroidery machine has been causing her some slight annoyances. Nothing you'd notice in the file itself unless you started looking at it really closely, or tried to convert it to a different style of medium, but she noticed and it bugged her. So I fired up a CAD program and took a gander at it, and it immediately started pinging my symmetry-senses, just like she said it would.

I decided to bore everybody else at the same time by streaming my work in the Hangout, and I used the frontpage logo as a starting point to gauge proportions. Using my rudimentary and somewhat backward American understanding of geometry, a calculator smarter than my high school math teacher, and a nice warm cup of chai, I started to array the individual components in such a way that they would be perfectly radially symmetrical, as far as modern technology would allow.

There was a lot of guess-work involved, and a couple of people questioned whether I was seeing patterns where there were none, but I got it to work, and I think it's pretty neat. Some of you may not notice a difference at all, and I'll take that as a compliment.

Attached* are a vector ( SVG ) and two rasters ( PNG and GIF ), if the attachments thing plays nice with my post. This is also the first time I've ever done a vector image, so be gentle if the SVG is a little screwy, because I had no idea what I was doing and had to convert it through like four filetypes to even get it to open in Inkscape.

**EDIT** - since the forum keeps eating my SVG, I'll be linking inline to the Google Drive folder where these images are stored.

Yes, the symmetry of the front page logo is off, but that is a very old logo that has since been corrected elsewhere by yours truly. ;)

I still need to update the front page's though.

It seems that I know that I know.
What I would like to see is the 'I' that knows me when I know that I know that I know.

Of course not!

Did it help Kit? Did you learn something from it? Can I use it in the size you have it in for something?

Presumably, Kinda, and "It's scalable", in that order.

I agree completely. Maybe eventually a page or somesuch? Or a big "Logos Only" thread?

lol...

We have a thread (in the art forum?) where Proteus posted some "TOTJO wallpapers"

Steamboat, if you comb the forums, and create a list of threads and posts, maybe we can create a subforum of the "Jedi art" forum...

Got it. I'll PM it to somebody. Proteus and yourself, maybe?
