Logos for great scientists By Grant Jacobs • 27/06/2013 • 11 Designed by Kapil Bhagat for Science Day in India, these logos for great scientists have been gathered by imgur into a trellis-style presentation: Other reading on Code for life: Preserving endangered species — of gut microbes On vetting TED(x) events – a suggestion Terry Speed on Epigenetics Crick’s letter to son, aged 12, explaining DNA structure model Fun logos Science 11 Responses to “Logos for great scientists” Brilliant! Reply They’re fun, eh? I’m a bit disappointed at the DNA, though. Reply Well Grant, they ARE making $ out of DNA!! Reply Look closer at the DNA in the logo to see my concern 😉 Reply There’s more at Science Typography: http://visual.ly/science-typography-01 (H/T: Alison Campbell.) Reply I love the one for Einstein 🙂 Reply Schrodinger! Outstanding 😀 I like McClintock’s too, but then I’m a big fan of hers in general! Reply There’s a logo for a New Zealander now too (Rutherford). Alison, I like it too, but I have to admit it also reminds me of ‘that’ big M company! (Whose name we shall not utter here…!) Cath, The Schrödinger one is good eh? Your mentioning it reminds me that I had once thought to try a post on Boltzmann who, like Schrödinger, has his equation on his grave. I meant to visit Boltzmann’s grave while I was briefly in Vienna last year, but in the end couldn’t fit it in before I moved on to Slovenia because the cemetery is a bit of a dogleg out of town. Boltzmann’s equation features in molecular simulations, which is where I know it from. There’s a nice picture from Schrödinger’s grave on Flickr.
