Design brief

Organization name

Reef Ecology Lab

Description of business

The Reef Ecology Lab is a marine research lab in a university in Saudi Arabia. We are a group of researchers studying various aspects of coral reef ecosystems in the Red Sea, including the behavior and ecology of different reef animals (e.g. whale sharks, other sharks, manta rays, groupers, snappers, corals, etc…). One of the primary aims of our research is to acquire adequate information about coral reefs in the Red Sea that enables us to conserve and protect them.
We consider ourselves to have the Team Zissou spirit but with the Team Hennessey resources.

Further requirements

This logo will be used in rashguards, tshirts, hats, etc.

One possibility is to echo the generic form of the basic KAUST logo (see You may note that the Red Sea Research Center logo follows this theme with four images loosely matching the four KAUST colors and arrangement. This is not a requirement, just a possibility.

We look forward to your designs! Note that feedback will come from various lab members.
