Attention Everyone: We Have New Logos!

After two months of hard work by our amazing intern Luna Aguilar, we now present to you our new YSEA logos!

Drumroll, please…

Here they are!


YSEA blue people logo

“The design of this logo focuses on the human element of YSEA and highlights the fact that most members are Yale alumni. Since the organization’s name does not highlight this alumni connection, this design puts that idea at the forefront. This is present by the various blues that fill out the people which features the Yale Blue on the right and various shades of blue for the other characters. The reasoning for the different shades of blue is to visually represent the uniqueness of the individuals in YSEA. Although all are Yale-affiliated STEM people, everyone majored in different areas of STEM, are in different stages with their Yale education, pursued unique careers, and have experienced different walks of life and this is highlighted and appreciated in the design. The center person has a graduate cap in order to indicate that they are an alumni. The two people in the back do not have the caps because having the elevated people wearing caps would give off the impression that older and more educated individuals are literally above other individuals. Additionally, not all YSEA members are alumni but rather current Yale students or have another distinction.
