Comments on: The Roubini rebrand http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/02/the-roubini-rebrand/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Uncle Billy Cunctator http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/02/the-roubini-rebrand/comment-page-1/#comment-9542 Thu, 03 Dec 2009 02:14:36 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/12/02/the-roubini-rebrand/#comment-9542 My guess is that they ripped it off from Mozilla/Netscape for the digital age look, and thought it was tongue-in-cheek because of Gordon Gecko “Greed is good.”Did we ever figure out where he was really born? Turkey, or Iran? He has given conflicting reports. And who is his Mossad liaison?

I get it now. I always just figured ‘Roubini’ meant ‘gecko’ in Italian.

I’m no specialist, but that looks like a salamander to me. Monitors have narrower heads and claws rather than stubby toes:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monito r_lizardhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sal amanderThat’s reason enough to ditch it from the logo.I think a monitor lizard ripping the flesh from a vampire squid would be an excellent logo choice, but it is hard to do as a silhouette…
