Did you try . ..
Instead of trying to just describe an organization in filled shape or outline form, what happens if you take its logo and extrude it like a Slinky? The premise here is that these designs have a scientific nature to them. There is a history to the design and the group it represents, and it’s valuable to understand where it came from. The simplest of these logos could be the result of nothing more than taking the outline of an object and just repeating it inside itself. Or the design could be much more complex: It could suggest the idea of a transition—say, when an outline morphs back into its origin, as in a design where a flower morphs back to a seed.
