Logo design for Vincross, a project focused on computer science, technology, artificial intelligence and robotics.
"In 1488, Leonardo da Vinci invented a giant crossbow. It’ s an elegant art of technology and beyond the age of the world. Our studio treats technology as an art. So we describe us as “Vinci Crossbow” , and “Vincross” is short for it."
Leonardo's crossbow is a type of shooting weapon designed by Leonardo da Vinci, whose drawings are in the Codex Atlanticus. Designed for pure intimidation, da Vinci’s crossbow was to measure 42 braccia (or 27 yards) across. The device would have six wheels (three on each side) for mobility, and the bow itself would be made of thin wood for flexibility. Rather than fire giant arrows, Leonardo’s crossbow instead seems to be designed to fire large stones or possibly flaming bombs.
The symbol is designed based on the crossbow horns image, this part of the weapon being the most specific / recognizable one. Da Vinci designed this part of the crossbow inspired by the shapes of bats wings.
