I was thinking the project ion logo looks very dated (that chrome effect is so 2000s...), so why not try and help the devs on that matter since I'm a bit skilled in photoshop.
So, ideas: Ion = charged particle, simplest ion = Hydronium (H3O+).
Let's go, I sketched 3 very basic logos with that idea in mind, no colors or complex shapes yet, here is what I got (spent about 5 mins so bear with me).
So, what do you think? which one is better, why?
Text for "Project Ion" will come later, once I know which one you like the best. If devs can use it great, if not I had some fun :)
