Logo Design For PyXtal

in utopian-io •  6 months ago



PyXtal is an open source python package useful for creating random crystal structures. The gotten structures can then be further made into 1D, 2D, 3D crystals, and more functions.

Tools I used while working:

  • Adobe Illustrator CC 2015

Necessary links about whole design and design process:

Repository of Project
Communication with project owner
Proof of merged
Google Drive
Proof of Work Done
Font: Myriad Pro



  • Logo has a crystalline structure making it relatable to the PyXtal project.
  • Logo has a cool and modern feel.
  • Color scheme of logo was drawn from the documentation site of the project so it blends in.
  • Initially i only made a letter "P" with the crystals for logo, upon suggestion by PO to add a letter "y" to the logo so it reflects components of python and crystal, an improvement was made which PO really liked and was satisfied with.

Hey dee-y,

I like the initial version more than the version with "Y". However this is what project owner wanted.

So there are a few things caught my eye, like why did you use a bigger "Y" letter.

And I don't think myriad pro is a preferable font for logo design. And it looks like distorted vertically.

You could create the same shape without all those grids and extra effort with just "4 points star" and "2 rectangles"

Hi @oups, i like the first logo too but sadly... lolz. I made the letter "Y" slightly bigger so it is more identifiable as what it is. Thanks for the easy show for quicker work flow 😊 really appreciate that one.
