RichardasR was great to work with, made updates quickly as requested and I'm really happy with the final design.

This was my very first time using 99designs. F3 was amazing throughout the entire process. Very responsive, quick turnaround, open to ideas and took creative direction extremely well - I had a fantastic time working together. F3 is thoughtful and creative and listens well...and is able to deliver designs that truly speak to the clients needs. This was a great experience. I hope we are able to work together again in the future.

Who are you known as?
DIDL (Data-Intensive Development Lab)
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The Data-Intensive Development Lab (DIDL) is a research and policy lab at UC Berkeley that explores how novel sources of data, and new computational algorithms, can promote sustainable global development. We believe better data and smarter analytics can improve quality of life around the world. Using expertise in machine learning, statistics, and large-scale analytics, we address the challenges facing the world’s poor.
Our target audience includes academic researchers, government policymakers, industry partners and sponsors (like Google and Facebook), and foundations (such as the Gates Foundation). Please visit http://didl.berkeley.edu to learn more about the work being done by the lab. Note that the entire website is being overhauled, starting with the logo.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
Feel free to use any colors. The UC Berkeley color brand guidelines can be found here (http://brand.berkeley.edu/colors/), but it is not requirement to use those colors.
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
The lab combines two key elements: high-tech computation (machine learning, big data, artificial intelligence, algorithms, social networks, etc.) and a focus on global development (fighting poverty in Africa, reducing corruption, lowering inequality, etc.). The ideal logo would somehow capture elements of both of these key concepts.
While I am open to being inspired by any effective and beautiful design, my thinking is that I'd like a logo that is modern, sparse, and relatively abstract. Ideally, the logo would contain the acronym DIDL and the words "Data-Intensive Development Lab", but if you are able to do something amazing that only has either the acronym OR the words, feel free to show me the way. If there's an easy way to incorporate the UC Berkeley bear logo, that's cool too, but definitely not essential.
