The DTQ logo was designed specifically for this site.
It’s a first draft, and given the design expertise in this community I’m very open to it being improved upon.
The conceptual basis is the greek symbol for Delta combined with the Q for Queensland.
- mathematically and symbolically it stands for change (which is really what all design is about)
- Delta in the Greek alphabet is the fourth letter and translates to the letter D
- Delta is especially used in mathematics to refer to dt which is change in the x axis when performing calculus
- it also represents the dt of design teachers in Queensland
Thus the logo can be variously read as an acronym for “design teachers Queensland” or perhaps more poetically as “change through design education in Queensland”.
The font used is the free font aileron. I’m not wedded to this font.
If anyone wants to improve upon the logo (or get their class to improve upon the logo!) then I can replace it throughout the site…
