I can confirm that @jacobwilliams is very good at creating logos. :wink:

Gotta keep that purple going!

Nice work. Minor nitpick, the kerning between the 2 and 1 in 2021 seems a bit too large IMO.

If there’s actually any interest from @alazzaro or @tiziano.mueller I can clean it up and put the files on a repo somewhere.

@alazzaro, @tiziano.mueller, please let us know if you like the logo that @jacobwilliams proposed. I like it a lot. So that Jacob can polish it.

Hello @jacobwilliams @certik ,
Thanks for the contribution. However, we cannot change it now because of the University of Zurich grant (took some time to check that). But you are free to use in your Fortran-lang session :wink:
Remember to submit an abstract for a presentation!
