I am open to various design ideas. The design could be for SAGE Research Lab or SAGE Lab. The design could include the slogan, but it is not necessary. I am also open to a variety of color schemes - though the university colors are black and yellow. I am open to various interpretations, designs, and ideas. I am eager to see design ideas and provide constructive feedback.
After seeing several different designs, I wanted to provide some additional details. My lab generally does not work with beakers and vials, we work with people. I would like to see some designs that incorporate symbols for sleep and/or development/aging/older and/or wisdom. Again, thank you for your work thus far and I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.
Update #2: I have done some more thinking about how to represent "aging" in the design. This is clearly tricky. I would be interested in seeing design ideas the incorporate any of the following: hour glass, sun dial, seeds to plants, trees, tree rings, silhouettes with shadows, transitions in size, etc. I think symbols for sleep are pretty clear (bed, moon, stars, Zzz'so, sheep, etc). Again, thanks for all your hard work!
