Winner - Jonas Mateus
Jonas was very professional throughout my contest, and was happy to accommodate all of my requests. His design was my "first impression" choice, and also the most popular of the 100+ I received when I ran a poll. A pleasure to work with, thanks Jonas :)

How Msmoot started their logo design journey

Company name

Cytoscape

Overview

Cytoscape is a free biological network visualization software application that is widely used among scientists. Cytoscape is used to visualize networks (or graphs) of molecular interactions to help scientists gain insight into how our (and other) bodies actually work on a molecular level. If you've heard of the "Human Genome", then we're the next step. We take the data from the human genome and try to help people visualize how things fit together. See http://cytoscape.org for more detail.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Scientists of many stripes. Our primary target is the biological/medical research community, but social scientists and computer scientists use Cytoscape too. We've even heard of human resources departments using Cytoscape to create org charts. Even though our focus is biological networks, we're technically domain neutral, so we can visualize any type of network.

Requirements

This is a logo for a software application so it will be used in several different ways:
- On our website.
- Within the application itself.
- As an icon on the desktop/toolbar of the computer.
- A reduced/minimized version of the logo might appear in the address bar of a web browser.

This means the logo should be fairly simple and not overly complicated.

We'd like the logo to capture the "network" or "graph" nature of Cytoscape. It would be great if the logo could include nodes and edges (see the attached sample network and images on our website http://cytoscape.org for an idea of what we mean by networks, nodes and edges).

Since the current logo is very colorful, it might be nice if the new logo was as well, but this is not a hard requirement.

It would be best to avoid overtly biological themes (e.g. test tubes the background) in the logo since we are domain neutral. That being said, it's OK if you take inspiration from the biological world, just be subtle.

It would be best to avoid cartoons.

We'll require a vector image of the logo (SVG, PS, PDF, etc.) with no embedded images or things that can't be easily manipulated in Illustrator.
