Who designed the instructables logo? Answered

This yellow robot seems a little wired..
I really hope the designer can think a little bit more about the logo's style
This website is so awesome, but the robot seems a little rigid

The design for Robot, boxy, schoolbus yellow, with antennas for ears and wheels for feet, was chosen by a blue-ribbon branding committee. That's the same way they make all the important decisions around here.

Oh yeah! There were focus groups too!

The focus groups loved Robot! You know, loved, erm, statistically speaking.

Leave Him alone!

A the bottom of this page there is a Who_We_Are that will take you to several HQ editors, see if they might want to run a contest for design ideas.

I'm a member since 2006 and there is a lot of investment in that robot (who-is-not-emailing-answers-lately) including T-shirts, hoodies and HALLOWEEN cards which makes it instantly recognizable by me across the web.

I quite like it too...

Reminds me of the old scary robots in the BW movies when I was little.

Umm, OK this this even a question of a complaint about the graphic design?

I do like it, it give a imperfect, prototype, handmade, 'DIY' feel. A perfect and symmetrical CAD drawing would not really be a good choice for this site.
