It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the new logomark for the Region One Newsletter, now named, “Hailing Frequencies Open”.
This logomark was designed by the STARFLEET Corps of Engineers (COE). This speaks volumes to the immense amount of talent in the Corps.
I was overwhelmed at the beauty of this logo, and that’s putting it mildly. Further, the speed and professionalism of the finished product is truly out-of-this-world.
Kudos to all of the Corps of Engineers team that brought this concept into print.
This logomark is designed from the guidelines laid out in the new STARFLEET Visual Standards Manual, First Edition, 2024.
Symbolism of the logomark:
Filling the top half of the outside border in a semi-circle is the name of the newsletter “Hailing Frequencies Open“. In the bottom half of the outside border is “First Fleet“, the unofficial nickname of Region One.
Eight stars representing the eight states that make up Region One are placed four each on the left and right sides spaced evenly in the outside border within the remaining area between the name and nickname. They also symbolize the connection of the newsletter to the Region through the membership.
Evenly spaced around a thinner inside border are the four Region One Sectors, “Alpha“, “Beta“, “Gamma“, and “Delta“.
The custom interior of the logo shows the cluster of the eight states slightly separated from each other to show their individuality but not so much so as to allow them to show their inclusiveness and connectivity to each other.
Behind the states are horizontally flowing set of frequency lines which represent transmitting (reaching out) to all Region One membership as well as the membership communicating to each other and the Region.
