Lab logo design

Following a meeting of the Mycological Society of America in 2019, I took it upon myself to create a logo for the Stajich Lab in the interest of unifying our diverse research interests under a single brand.

The color scheme is based on the official UC Riverside colors (gold and blue). The main feature of the logo is a cladogram that frames images of the various fungi that Stajich lab members research.
