The logo for OMEC (the Organic Materials in Electronics Consortium) reflects the role of the consortium, which is to develop organic, carbon based alternatives to metal and silicon circuitry used currently in the electronics industry. It is in the form of a printed circuit board, which is duplicated symmetrically above and below the acronym.
The acronym ‘OMEC’ has an antique meso-american sound – similar to ‘Aztec’ and ‘Toltec’ – and we have played to this in the design and font choice (Miandra). The printed circuit boards bear some resemblance to the feathered crowns that used to be worn by the rulers of these countries!
The OMEC logo was created in March 2006
