Ethereum is one of the most popular blockchain platforms out there. Along with Bitcoin, Ethereum's cryptocurrency "Ether" is a leading cryptocurrency in the world.
CBC Casper is a project that aims to introduce an improved set of consensus protocols to public blockchains--and is focused primarily on Ethereum.
Here's the problem: Today, the leading blockchains rely on a consensus protocol called "Proof of Work". This involves heavy cryptographic calculations across many computers across the globe. This has resulted in increased electricity consumption. It's estimated that both Bitcoin and Ethereum burn over $1 million worth of electricity and hardware costs per day.
However, there's a better consensus protocol solution!
Meet CBC Casper (which stands for "correct-by-construction" Casper)
CBC Casper introduces a family of consensus protocols, one of which introduces an alternative to Proof of Work, which is called Proof of Stake.

OK, so with that out of the way... let's now talk about the logo you'll be designing for one of Ethereum's most ambitious consensus initiatives!
I would like the logo to incorporate BOTH the Typeface text "CBC Casper" as well as an Icon.
For the logo's icon concept, here are three different ideas:
1) An icon that incorporates a polygon like Ethereum's Logo; or something similiar (https://www.ethereum.org/assets)
2) Or alternatively, incorporate a bit of a "Ghost" type of character or feel (i.e. like Casper the Friendly Ghost--However, it's important that we don't rip off Casper the Friendly Ghost and violate any trademark/copyright issues). So go for a more "Abstract" Ghost character.
3) Or alternatively, it would be funny to have a "Rick and Morty" type of theme (science/space/time-travel). For instance, you could incorporate the Green portal from Rick and Morty: https://target.scene7.com/is/image/…&fmt=pjpeg
4) Here's another idea: since CBC Casper introduces a FAMILY of technologies, maybe have the icon have an interconnected set of tech/nodes/relationships or something.
Best of luck!
