I had the privilege of designing a logo for a regional Partners in Flight working group, the Boreal Partners in Flight (BPIF). Members of this group span Alaska and western Canada, with work focused primarily on but not restricted to Boreal and Tundra dwelling taxa. To craft the design, I worked with members of the group and selected a few focal species to be featured. Carefully picked, the species also are aesthetically tied, and provide an appropriately cold image with some sharp red highlights. These species, the Willow Ptarmigan (Lagopus lagopus), Northern Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis), and McKay’s Bunting (Plectrophenax hyperboreus) all share some research focus from members of BPIF.
