For no particularly good reason, I was trolling through the archive.org library of former incarnations of Scalzi.com when I found this former logo for the site, which I rather quite like:
This one’s from 2000 or so, just in case any of you think my penchant for procrastinatory Photoshoppery is somehow a new enthusiasm. From a design point of view this logo is not 100% baked (for example, one small problem: the lower limb of the “C” in “com” is not flush with the feet of the “o” or “m”), but I like the concept of the logo. There are days I wish I was actually more adept as a visual artist than I am (which is to say: not very), but I expect if I was any better, I spend all my time visually fiddling with the site, and never doing any actual writing. Which is, you know. Not what people come here for.
