THE FCIP LOGO ORIGIN STORY

Our logo (https://www.meetup.com/goFCIP/photos/289869/#473011059) was designed with the diversity and creativity of our members in mind. The infinity loop represents, among many things, our appreciation for infinite creation, ideas and learning. The component parts of the logo also represent collaboration and kinetic potential. These elements all live in an abstract cubed space, which is a placeholder for their virtual environment. The <> symbols are a nod to the underlying building blocks of that environment, which is the internet. Many thanks to John Patzman of 1KRobots (http://www.1krobots.com/) for designing our logo and to the FCIP members who voted for this design to represent our amazing group.
