I designed it in high school. I was working on some electronics projects and wanted to put a logo on them. This is what I came up with. The idea is basically an M for Mulanax with motor commutators around it. I was also thinking sturdy robot “hands”. The original color scheme was green and yellow.
I designed it so it could be stenciled in one or two steps. I also concentrated on using unit based layout and line thickness. At some point I reduced the outer radius by one unit, and narrowed the M. I remembered hearing that concentric circles and arrows emanated precision.
When I was working to upload it for the blog site today, I realized it looked a lot like a stove burner. Hey! Some custom colors to match the site palette, and here we are.
