Logo design first steps

I set out to make a new logo for a website about making data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable). The website came out aof a project called FAIRplus, and I tried to keep the original colours and font of that project logo for this ‘FAIR Cookbook’. I had a brainstorm and researched the imagery around FAIR.

First cyanotype

I got a cyanotype kit and tried it on a sunny evening. I think the sun was too low so I had to expose for a long time and I didn’t realise the subject had to be flat against the paper. I thought a silhouette would create an image. This was a seed head and most of it wasn’t touching the paper, so didn’t create an image.
