I designed this logo for my Graphic Design 2 class, spring quarter 2012. The assignment was to create a logo for a high-tech conference, either real or fictional. I chose MEMs, or micro-electro-mechanical systems, and named my conference MEMScon; later I discovered there really is such a conference. During the research phase, I found a lot of very cool photos of this microscopic technology, three of which are shown below. These three in particular provided inspiration for my logo, showing as they do the sort of micro gears and circuits that are key parts of this technology.
