Deze korte briefing werd door de opdrachtgever geschreven:
We are a research group at TU Darmstadt, working with applied cryptography and IT security. Our main focus is on protecting privacy via practical cryptographic protocols. We are working on bridging the gap between theory and practice by employing methods from algorithm engineering to achieve practical and performant solutions. We are also teaching our research topics to students.
The full name of our group is: 'ENCRYPTO - Cryptography and Privacy Engineering'. Our target audience are researchers, students and industry. Our current website is: www.encrypto.de
The logo should be strongly related to security and privacy.
The logo must be modern and minimalistic and mostly focus on the name ENCRYPTO. Ideally, the logo should also transport what our group is doing, for example using one or some of the following typical symbols from our field: arrows for communication steps in protocols, gear wheels for engineering, Boolean circuits with AND and XOR gates, locks and keys for security/cryptography, masks for privacy, 1s and 0s for bits. Note that these symbols are just suggestions and inspiration, and we would prefer a simple and clean design.
The uploaded draft is just a very rough idea and too crowded. Maybe a few of the ideas in the draft can be used for the logo, but we are also happy to look at entirely different proposals.
We want to use the logo on our website www.encrypto.de and on official documents.
The logo should work well in both English and German contexts, even though the name itself is in English.
