Introducing CMU INFORMS logo

We introduce the logo for the CMU INFORMS Student Chapter. The logo is designed by our alumnus, Christian Tjandraatmadja. The principal component of the logo is the CMU Tartan square.

Tartan Square

Christian had the idea of embedding a named graph into a square emulating a “CMU Tartan” pattern. After trying a few different graphs, he settled with the Möbius-Kantor graph. The graph being Hamiltonian makes it easy to be represented in a square. The graph being cubic allows so each node has one edge inside the box. The 3-edge-colorablility makes the coloring of the edges symmetrical.
