The Arc’teryx Logo chosen to appear along with the newly altered company name of Arc’teryx was a skeleton of the “Berlin specimen” of the bird. It also happens to be the most complete skeleton of the Archaeopteryx that has been discovered to date.
I love this story. It is basically about a graphic design student who created one of the most iconic logos in the world. However, that was not how it was initially conceived. The story revolves around two main people, the student and an assistant professor who had both met at Portland State University in 1969.
