      Presents: All 7 except Marc (excuse)

       

      Topics: 

      • Revise and refine the requirements according to the 59 designs we already have (and don't like)
      • Send the revised requirements to the four finalists and ask them to re-submit a logo
      • If a suitable logo is received and selected by the committee then put it to the full collaboration for a graded vote (5 intervals) - values less than the mean are counted negative, so logo should be endorsed rather than simply the best of the worst. (last time "vote blanche" was hardly chosen despite a number of dissenters). 

       

      General Guidelines

      • "G" should be at the same level as "4". Message to pass: Geant4 is the name not Geant Version 4
      • Number 56 is a way to go
      • Transparent background is fine/better than white. With a box if the background is full
      • G4 logo should not look the same as others of our institutionals logos (Ex SLAC? G4 AI...)

       

      Color Scheme:

          2/3 colors ? Two many colors are confusing

          Finalists :

              1 - Stronger colours, tracks are a bit random and invisible on Geant4 one, more 4 to level of rest of text and same size, grey background. Some kind of detector behind. Police a bit too small. Tracks are confusing

              2 - Green/blue/brown green is too light, spiral has not link to Geant4 / simulation. Police is fine. Tracks are fine

              3 -  Some kind of detector behind, fragmented shape will not show up well when small. Spacing on each caracters is a bit too much. Police is a bit square. Tracks are too confusing

              4 - No meaning for the geometrical shape, bland colour scheme. Small logo is illisible

      Banner size

          - Prefer the #56 sizing

          - Number 4 finalist is too much square

          - compatability with a favicon format

       

      Slogan

          Geometry and tracking ? - no

          Radiation simulation toolkit ?

          Simulating Reality?

          A simulation toolkit ? <=

          Simulating Radiations ? - Radiation Simulation or no "s" Radiation(s) simulated ?

       

      - Regroup requierements

      - Send the requirements

      - Final proposal : Skype meeting with them

       

      Send a mail on finalists on 10th April

              Ask the finalists if they want to revise there logo according to your requirements. 4 finalists + a few others (number 56)
