I’ve been involved with Manchester Girl Geeks for a few years now. In case you’re not familiar with them, here’s an excerpt from their Who are the girl geeks? page:
“Manchester Girl Geeks is a not-for-profit group which organises networking events, talks and hands-on workshops for women and girls with an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).”
Manchester Girl Geeks was originally part of the Girl Geek Dinners movement and this was obvious in their original logo with the girl symbol plus fork and knife. However, they had since moved away from just the dinners and were offering a wider range of activities (such as family friendly workshops and Girl Geek Tea Parties). With this shift in their offerings and an internal shuffle within the management of the group – I was commissioned to create a new logo that would reflect this change in direction.
The new logo design and how it sits with the existing Manchester skyline banner, which I had previously created for their website.
Hope the new computer based logo with a hint at circuitry makes you curious to find out more about Manchester Girl Geeks. Most of their events are based at Madlab in Manchester’s Northern Quarter (36-40 Edge Street, Manchester, M4 1HN). Boy geeks are welcome, especially if they come along with a girl.
A full listing of upcoming events is available on the Manchester Girl Geek website.
