One of the projects we had to handle this semester is the design of the WiCS logo. As an organization, we had to pick a logo that represented some of our values: inclusivity, support and excellence.
At first, we had two main ideas for an animal mascot. The first was a grasshopper, which was a slight pun on Grace Hopper. Also, the idea of a grasshopper jumping to new heights matches well with helping others achieve in WiCS. The other idea was a manatee because manatees live in families and stick together, just like WiCS members. Not to mention, manatees are super cute.
Final decisions are still to be made but we plan on using the logo for multiple outlets including merchandise and advertisements.
