/dev/color is a non-profit organization whose mission is to maximize the impact of Black software engineers.
I designed the logo for /dev/color in Motion, the organization's inaugural conference whose theme was "Onwards and Upwards."
Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
Background & Process
The final design was an interpretation of the Wi-Fi connection icon to represent technology and connectivity. The blocked effect symbolizes building blocks of career achievement, a theme central to /dev/color's mission.
I began the project with a high degree of flexibility, presenting conference organizers with several ideas. One of these ideas, the infinity symbol, become a jumping off point that led to the ultimate choice of the Wi-Fi icon. Designs began as monochromatic; however, color was introduced per the organizers' request.
