Yes, Rationalists can manage to be simulataneously sexy and alluring, as well as coldly objective. Yes, it can be a good selling point - but I still think an eye displaying virtuous skeptical curiosity will suit better than the eye asking: "How YOU doin'?" :lol:

Now, let us stay calmly and rationally focused on the subject at hand and take your nascent crush on me out of this thread... ;)

Agreed, the eye doesn't look skeptical enough, hmm...

Not bad Oliver!
The smaller "S" looks a bit weird though.

About the lightbulb/question mark... I'm pretty sure I've seen that combination somewhere else already but I can't seem to figure out where :scratch:

It was suggested in this thread earlier, so I just drew a concept for that...

Throwing out an idea:

Using Czech hedgehogs against the tanks of irrationality...
My attempt, just to give you my vision.

I'm not a designer, so if anyone wants to run with the idea, please do.
I once applied for a job as a mustard cutter.

But unfortunately I wasn’t quite good enough.

I really like the font and layout of this one, but I'm not sure about the symbolism of the atom. By that I mean it doesn't say "rational scepticism" to me. What about something like a fossil ammonite? Something which, if found, might provoke that kind of sceptical inquiry...am I making any sense?

I agree, it's a really creative exercise, everyone throwing designs and ideas into the pot, firing off each other. :dance:
