Project description

This logo is the 5th Columbus BSides Security Conference.  There was a previous contest, but we are looking for something cool this year.

We would love to see computer hacking elements such as the classic bright green text with lots of zeros and ones in the BSides Block Text.  Then incorporate one of the themes of Columbus, Ohio into the design. Consider adding anything that has to do with the Ohio State buckeyes, the city skyline, and maybe reference the state flag. Additionally, the state bird is a cardinal. 

Make it your own, though and feel free to get creative within these parameters. I have attached below the original BSides logo to show you that the "BSides" block text font cannot change, but every other aspect can. You can compare that to our logo from last year to see how different you can make the logo from the original without changing the font. Just to be clear, we are wanting a logo completely different from the one we used last year. Thanks!!
