The logo design was developed by Blaise Bourdin of the LSU Mathematics Department.
The design was based on research found in the articles "Morphological analysis of the crack pattern of a drying film bounded to an elastic substrate and subject to a uniform inelastic strain", by
León-Baldelli, A., Babadjian, J.-F., Bourdin, B., Henao, D., and Maurini, C. (2014) and "A variational model for fracture and delamination of thin films" J. Mech. Phys. Solids, 70:15 - 32.
Graduate student Richard Frnka modified the logo for the t-shirt design.
Many thanks to both of you.
