CALGARY, Sept. 30, 2013 /CNW/ -
Science Borealis logo revealed
Science Borealis: Blogging from Canadian Perspectives is pleased to unveil its new logo - sure to become an instantly recognizable symbol for the network in Canada and around the world. A community driven project developed by Genome Alberta and Canadian Science Publishing in partnership with group of dedicated Canadian science bloggers, Science Borealis is Canada's first comprehensive science blog network.
The platform will aggregate Canada's many science blogs and provide a uniquely Canadian gateway for information, news, and opinion on science in Canada. About to enter the beta testing phase, ScienceBorealis.ca will officially launch on November 22 at the Canadian Science Policy Conference in Toronto.
This summer we held a logo contest to find the perfect image to go along with this exciting new initiative. Today, we're pleased to share it with you…
The new logo is designed by Charles Bourne, a graduate of the University of King's College History of Science and Technology programme. Charles is a Halifax-based (and sometimes Vienna) freelance designer, photographer and editor.
Whether you want the latest in Canadian science, information to inform policy, to connect with researchers, write a term paper, or you just want to learn about neat stuff, ScienceBorealis.ca will deliver Canadian science to Canadians.
Genome Alberta is a publicly funded organization that initiates, funds, and manages genomics research and partnerships. We were established in 2005 as part of Alberta's Life Sciences Strategy through an initiative between the Alberta Government and federally funded Genome Canada. www.genomealberta.ca
