Yellow Report Cover Design

From eicug
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page displays potential designs for the cover of the Yellow Report that are created by members of the community (EICUG). The final version will be chosen by vote during the 4th YR workshop in November 2020. The actual cover will then be created by a graphic designer based on the winners design.

Please do not size the pictures bigger than the first entry. One can always click on the picture to get the full size version. Be detailed in you description of your design and explain what made you choose it.

# Sketch of Cover Description Designer
1 DrawingForID1.png The large circle at the top is Newton's color wheel to symbolize the QCD color scheme and to commemorate where all of physics started.The smaller circle at the bottom is the EIC logo from the users' group webpage. My intention was to have the ion source, booster and AGS illustrated with the EIC logo, fueling the main eRHIC, the color wheel. But the end product somehow looks like a cover for a Lord of the Rings spin-off.I was hoping the pictures would stand out more and the background be yellower,but couldn't make it happen with the simple online drawing tools I had access to.

2 DrawingForID2.jpg This is an illustration of the solid model created by one of our senior engineers, Paul Kovach, of the EIC forward side IR. It shows 3/4 of the hadron magnets in section, with the electron beam tube shown along the horizontal midplane cut. Work is continuing but this is the current design status. Mike Anerella
3 YR-Cover-Design-BPage v0.png A bit on the nose maybe, but the EIC as the key to unlocking the secrets of the nucleus/nucleons. A better artist than I could make the nucleus look more convincing and maybe have some kind of 'golden light of discovery' coming out of the open nucleus. The hilt of the key could stay the EIC design picture or the EIC logo. Brian Page


4 DrawingForID4.png This design contrasts physics concepts and hardware, using existing BNL copyrighted images. It assumes a glossy cover, but may be a little kitsch, the sort of thing the art department would have come up with anyway if left to their own devices. Airbrushed in is a little homage to STAR. The transmission could be more of a torn paper effect, but I am not sure how to do that. Levente Hajdu

6 Lighttable.png The Yellow Report is the 2nd large EICUG/Community document. Keeping some relation between the covers is probably not a bad thing. The White Paper had the film projector with a film stripe. The concept illustrated on the left represents a light table. It's like a mosaic in a sense and as multi-facet as our community. The pictures should reflect the activities in the PWG and DWG, also possibly photos from EICUG meetings, people involved in R&D, test beams. One could think about asking each of the 15 WG to select one plot that reflects their work (or is simply the artistic best looking). The DW groups could add drawings, photos of prototypes, performance plots. The EIC covers a broad spectrum of things so having a cover that reflects is a good thing, especially as the YR encapsulate this diversity.

The plots above are only examples that I could grab quickly.

7 EIC YR cover proposal Pia.png I suggest the following: yellow gradient + the image (comes from the EIC BNL webpage as you can see), plus the text as in the version 1 (or whatever is needed). Pia Zurita


8a EICUG-YellowReport-Cover.png A yellow cover for the Yellow Reports: the blue color for the title, volume, and the EICUG logo nicely highlights and complements the yellow cover color. The idea is to have a blue graphic for the detector volume and another blue graphic for the physics volume. Here, the example for the physics volume is shown. Yulia Furletova

9 EIC YR LOGO debasish-das.png What it means : It depicts the concept of Zero which is detailed here: https://pparihar.com/2014/04/02/concept-of-zero/

This symbol of a circle and a dot known as "bindu" in the middle symbolizes the void and the concept of ZERO. The EIC logo is taken from the EIC users home-page.

10 EIC cover UnchartedTerritories.jpg Uncharted Territories.The yellow helmet at the bottom left is a common symbolism for an engineer. The helmet lights the way ahead in a stream of rays, similar to a road, stretching beyond sight. There are some physicists observing the stream of rays as it passes by (the pointing magnifying glasses are primarily used to draw attention). On both sides of the path, there are building-like supercomputers (memory storage units intended, but images could not be found) rising high. In the sky, there is a faint rainbow which seems to emanate from some point far-away on the path.

Since engineering, computer science, and physics go hand-in-hand for a facility such as EIC, I have tried to include representative elements from all these fields. This is also relevant to the content of the Yellow Report - Physics studies (mainly Physics, Computers) as well as Detector concepts (mainly Physics, Engineering). The path laid out by the rays represents a new path, which could potentially lead to uncharted territories - that is, new discoveries. The path is dotted with electrons-ions; it will look better if the path is made 3-D in the figure, so we can have streams of electrons rather than dots. The storage units on either side represent big-data that is usually encountered in such facilities. Finally, the rainbow in the sky represents a hope, not yet very clear, as well as the 7 colors - since the outcome is anticipated to be mainly about colors.

While this looks like an information-overload, and the interpretations might not come naturally; but once it is properly designed, the message will probably be understood at a glance.

11 EIC cover VirtualCollision.jpg Virtual Collision.The background circuit here stands for Engineering, and a lot of circuits will undoubtedly be used in the facility (detectors; computers; power systems). In the foreground, there is a 'virtual' collision between what seems like an electron and a spherical circuit (our virtual implied particle). Many such simulations of (virtual) collisions will be used before the actual experiment, and hence these are indispensable in our quest to probe the finer structure of nuclear matter. Finally, there is an aperture on the sphere revealing the inner structure of nuclear matter. Here, again, I try to represent physics, engineering, as well as computer science. The curvature in the electron-trail is just included because it looks better (to me, at least). Siddhant Rathi
