Vac is a research initiative created to build a modular peer-to-peer messaging stack, with a focus on secure messaging. The team, led by researchers Oskar Thoren and Dean Eigenmann, has been heavily focused on research, experimentation, and solving complex issues. Therefore, they haven't had much time for design ;)
We need your help to come up with a logo that helps depict the work, goals, and principles of the project.
So, let’s dive into some of the details.
What exactly is Vac?
Where did the name Vac come from?
Vāc. Is a Vedic goddess of speech. It also hints at being a vaccine.
What are our principles?
Vac is designed to enable private, secure, censorship resistant messaging. In today’s world, we rely on third party intermediaries and client server models for our communication. This leaves us vulnerable to meta data leakage, censorship, and general manipulation. Vac is being built to remove this reliance.
We build based on:
How This Works
For the next 2 weeks, this design challenge will be open to the public. On September 20th, five finalists are going to be determined using SNT Voting DApp Poll, then Vac project leads Oskar and Dean will select a final winner.
The winning Vac design will be the official project logo and the winner will get more than $400! We will use the logo as the basis of the overall brand and will be prominently featured on our new website and social channels!
Remember, Vac is a R&D initiative to enable private, secure, censorship resistant messaging for all.
Hi, considering the nature of your project and regardless of whether you like my designs, I really think you should use somehow graphene (2-D sheets), nano-tubes (folded 2-D sheets) or buckyball (check them online) for your logo design. That material is the strongest man-made created (stronger than diamond) and it can resemble the fact that you are creating a strong, unbreakable, censorship resistance network where communication can occur. Apart from that. the atoms in graphene & how is connected can symbolize a p2p network with some alterations. Anyways, those are my thought. Here are my designs based on a flat graphene sheet & in some cases I group 3 flat sheet beneath the name that might resemble nano-tubes. I also changed the color in a few versions.
Here are my works
We have 5 suggestions for the Vac logo and hope you like one of them! Please let us know if you have any comments to make them better.
