In 2009, while operating under our previous name "Max-Q", we decided that we needed our own emblem. We wanted it to be unique, but without straying away from the graphic standards we'd been using for some time. The emblem is based on the trademark "Q" often seen in our logos at the time. The design features a space shuttle orbiter and the International Space Station, as these two programs are what inspired us to begin our work with spaceflight media. The surnames of the five members of the team surround the Q.
