Logos for great scientists By Grant Jacobs • 27/06/2013 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 0 Responses to “Logos for great scientists” Brilliant! They’re fun, eh? I’m a bit disappointed at the DNA, though. Well Grant, they ARE making $ out of DNA!! Look closer at the DNA in the logo to see my concern 😉 There’s more at Science Typography: http://visual.ly/science-typography-01 (H/T: Alison Campbell.) I love the one for Einstein 🙂 Schrodinger! Outstanding 😀 I like McClintock’s too, but then I’m a big fan of hers in general! 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. […] I remarked to a reader, I was “a bit disappointed at the DNA” in the logo for Watson and Crick. (That’s not the DNA model they’re famous […] About that problem with the Watson & Crick logo: https://sciblogs.co.nz/code-for-life/2013/07/22/how-to-spot-a-badly-draw-dna-helix/ I would like to add: Linn aeus [in italics] Could someone please explain the Schrodinger one to me. I just cant figure it out I’m sorry, but you’ll want to provide a link – I don’t know what you’re looking at.
