New Design Replaces SLAC Seal on WWW Pages
In December 1995, a blue colliding particles graphic
replaced the former
red-on-white SLAC seal as the
official institutional graphic for SLAC WWW pages.
The colliding particle graphics were designed by
SLAC Technical Publications
Department (using Adobe Illustrator
and PhotoShop). The design was subsequently reviewed and approved
by the SLAC
Institutional Page Committee and the
Associate Directors' Committee on Computing (ADCoC).
Central pages in the SLAC Web typically bear a version of this new graphic,
which comes in three sizes. The biggest version which is superimposed
over an aerial photo of the SLAC site,
is used only to identify the
SLAC Welcome Page. The medium-sized
version is used only to identify the two forms of the SLAC
Detailed. The smallest version
is used to identify other central pages
(for example, this page), and may also be used
by other groups and individuals when they want to make
the SLAC institutional association clear at a glance.
Updating Your SLAC Graphics
Owners of WWW pages containing a graphic SLAC identifier may
want to update their URLs accordingly to point only to the
new official SLAC WWW graphic.
For a transition period the SLAC Web system has been modified
so these redirections happen automatically.
