In my struggle to make this end of the year at work more exciting, I was looking as usual at the forum, and remembered that last year during the same period the competition for the safecoin logo was closing. It is a bit late to join in, and of course I do not intend to contend with the winning submission.
Rather than focusing on a logo, I tried to imagine what a safecoin symbol (or a Unicode character typed with a keyboard) could look like. For such a symbol to be adopted, it should of course be distinct from other currencies, but also simple enough to be handwritten, scalable in size, and easily associated to a keyboard character.
First idea is a simple twist on the traditional USD symbol: changing the vertical bars to horizontal and separating them with a blank space to mimic the ‘equal’ sign. I hope we have something that conveys ‘fairness’, without eyeing too much towards the communist side
The fact that it is really close to the USD symbol would also make it easier to be understood and remembered by the general public.
The second try is directly inspired by one of the bitcoin symbols, ’ Ƀ '. The horizontal bar resting on the bottom tip of the S could somehow evoke a scale (at least this is what I wish to see ^^), and if so should communicate the idea of stability and balance.
Better ideas or comments are most welcome
