Plast 8 / Layer 8


A logo for an organisation Layer 8. The OSI model for networking contains 7 layers to describe the architecture for data communications between computers connected via a network. While not an official layer of the OSI model, layer 8 is sometimes referred to as the “user” layer or “political” layer. I wanted to depict 8 that has a human/user inside if you peal it.

That was my idea. The client had a different vision and wanted the eight to evolve into something organic, ideally a tree. That was the version they picked and now use (see below).
