We hope you like our new Chemistry Library logo!
It was designed by the Chemistry Library staff and the Chemistry Photography Department. The design was inspired by the steel tree and the colours that feature in the physical library space, as can been seen in the photos on the front and ‘About Us’ pages of this blog.
The design is diamond-shaped so that it fits into the window that you can see through into the library from the stairs outside.
The steel tree symbolises Yggdrasil, an immense ash tree in Norse mythology which has roots in the underworld and reaches up towards the light with its branches in the heavens (this is considered a powerful symbol of the role of molecular chemistry).
We can use our new logo to brand ourselves consistently in the virtual as well as the physical world.
