Reader Diana MacPherson is going to misread the title as Greek and then get all confused. Be that as it may, I wanted to extend thanks to several readers for their generosity in making me personal logos, along the lines of the logos of really famous scientists I showed yesterday. Two of my own were given as links in the comments, and one came by email. They all deserve public display, and I love them all. (Can you spot the common element?)
Note: I didn’t ask for logos, these were simply acts of artistic kindness.
First, from reader Jente, who got in both cats and speciation in Drosophila:
And from reader M. Janello, who worked my name into a phylogeny of the domestic cat’s closest relatives:
Finally, from reader “List of X” (the “E” is great):
Finally, last but not least, thanks also to reader Al B., who, as he’s in the food industry, sent me three pounds of shelled and unshelled almonds for my squirrels. They’re already nomming them like crazy. Those squirrels eat better than I do!

The black cat (Theo!) one is my favourite = )
The second one reminded me of an Evolutionist’s Menorah 🙂
The phylogeny one reminds me of Darwin’s tree illustration.
Me too ; I suspect intentionality.
Oh yes, completely intentional. I got the idea to turn the ‘y’ into a tree and then of course it had to be the cat family.
Someone down below said it needed the “I think” (from Darwin’s sketch) which is brilliant.
Yours best my vote (even without the “I think”).
All three are truly inspired. 🙂
Yes, I was just thinking the same – very clever, all three.
I like the third one most.
These could be a rotating display on the top of the page. PZ does this with similar submissions, mostly cephalopods.
Oh. I guess you didn’t like this one so much … 😢
Oh, no, I missed that one somehow! Thanks!
At the risk of sounding stupid (nothing new there), I don’t get it, Ant.
(Unintended pun: coin = specie; coy = specious is probably a stretch.)
Thanks, I though it was along these lines.
An unintended pun from Ant – shurely shome mishtake.
Those are all great and yes, I did get confused at first. 😉
For your sake we should call them “logotypes”, then. After all, this is a website, not a blog.
More scientist logotypes on Facebook at “LalaLand Graphics”… 175 at last count.
Do you have a link which doesn’t have the logos cropped?
If you go to the FB page album, they’re not cropped; just click on each one to see the full image. Enjoy!
That’s where I went before, P, but this time it seemed to work. Thanks;-)
In the logos of Ceiling Cat, “I haz”. Ceiling Cat saw that the catch was good, and he decorated the site with the catch.
By this time Ceiling Cat had finished the work he had been doing; so he haz rest too.
Such talent here!
I think I like the middle one best (though it’s hard to choose any above the others)–it just looks, well, Darwin-y.
Me too. At least you liked mine, thanks. 🙂
They are great! What am I missing in the 3rd one? Is the E evolving?
It’s meant to be a pair of boots. But I have to say that to my eye they look more like mukluks than cowboy boots.
OK, that does make sense, but maybe the toes could be pointier;-) All three are great!
I saw a boot being (lovingly) caressed by a cat’s tail!
Hey, that works too!
Hey! I worked very hard to convince myself that E was a squirrel. Now I have to start over.
I can kinda see the sqrl, now that you mentioned it:-)
Oh great, now I see the squirrel, too, even though I meant E as a pair of cowboy boots and not a squirrel. …but there may or may not be a nightjar there…:)
Maybe the nightjar got stomped by the boot ( serves it right;-)
And her tombstone would bear an inscription “Hid too well”.
List of X, would you mind if I try to enhance your design a bit? It’s my personal favorite.
Thank you, and no, go right ahead. There’s definitely room for improvement there.
I also sort of saw a cat giving head butts. 🙂
Yeah, maybe, kinda🐱
So glad you asked. I was afraid of looking really stupid…
If you don’t asks ya don’t finds out;-) I’m way past worrying about appearing stoopid…
I should be too. :embarrassed face:
I can’t seem to be able to do my embarassed catface icon on this site;-(
😼 I don’t have an emojii of embarrassed cat face.
Having emoji at all ought to be embarrassing enough.
One person’s embarrassment is another person’s geek bragging rights. 🎉🎈
Uh-oh, someone find the emojis!
Just as long as you DON’T haz BioLogos….
My vote’s for Janello.
You know what’s missing? Noms! The O could be a cherry pie.
Great stuff, Very creative.
Nice logos. I would love to see a logo that incorporates cats, evolution, and atheism all in one.
