the logo of gamedev.stackexchange is of interest to me. specifically does anyone know who designed it? how long ago it was made? and i am also curious how the design came about.

i ask because for some years i have had a logo design built around that concept. i am planning on using my design as a personal business logo and do not want to run into conflicts.

currently the only publicly visible iteration of my design is an iGoogle theme i made that incorporates the logo. i made and uploaded it in 2010, but i would have difficulty proving this without cooperation from Google. if you would like to see it is called "hexBird". search that on iGoogle > themes.

other than that i only have a thumbnail pencil drawing of it from 2009 and potentially a handful of friends / acquaintances who could attest to it's existence. all of my other copies (digital and hard-copy) have been lost to time.

again to re-iterate i would like to be able to use my design and would like to do so without trouble or inconvenience, to myself or others; so i would like information on the gamedev.stackexchange logo.

thank you.
