This logo was generated using the excellent Inkscape. The logo is entirely composed of spirals. In Inkscape, all spirals are modelled as general archimedian spirals which have polar equations of the form: r = a+ b * θ ^ (1/x). Inkscape refers to the 1/x term as the divergence.

- Only the
**G**and the dot above the**i**are true archimedian spirals (in the sense that the divergence is exactly one) – in such spirals, successive crossings of a given radius are constantly spaced. - The letters
**o**and**r**are actually circular arcs. These are degenerate instances of spirals where the divergence is zero. - The underline is strictly speaking a straight line, but I considered this to be another degenerate spiral; one with infinte divergence.
