Or, perhaps a bicycle wheel, get it, the “HUB” and spokes?
This design came from an unceremoniously canned re-branding effort launched at my graduate school, the Bainbridge Graduate Institute (now part of the powerhouse sustainability institution of Presidio Graduate School) in about 2008.
I say "canned" because the student community rose up and said, WTF!? We’re co-creating this place and you go off and come up with this re-branding stuff w/o engaging us. Nope. Nuh-uh. Not having it.
Well then. Apparently I did not pay attention. Why did I go off and choose this before the community has had any input? Good question. Maybe it’s just a starting point.
It’s green - as in “sustainability”. And, by helping people work closer to home, they’ll be more “green” by reducing their vehicle miles traveled.
Yes, it’s a messy circle, and start-up and small business stuff is messy. Let’s embrace that.
There’s something divine, uniform, and infinite about a circle. It’s connected. It keeps going. Folks sitting in a circle can see each other - they’re connected. There’s community in the circle.
Then there’s that whole Pi thing.
Oh, and it’s cut up into pieces, BUT they’re closely related to the whole - that’s what’s going to make this thing work - the uneven, irregular, and wholly unique pieces coming together to make the whole.
