5000 Answers with Dr. Ryan Maynard: The NewsBlog 5000 star

Todays question comes from CmdrSue. Sue writes:

Is there a particular reason why you have a pentagram as your background?

Thank you for your question CmdrSue.

What you are seeing is the symbol of NewsBlog 5000, which I designed myself. The background is a star, one of the symbols of our great nation. It's set at a jaunty angle and in a patriotic blue. The letters N, E, W, and S are set around the star, both the letters that spell news and the symbols found on the compass, representing the moral compass that we provide to society. Finally we add the roman numeral for 5000 to the final point on the star, to symbolize a fifth compass point for freedom of spirit and individuality.

On the background of the page, it is washed out to make a feint watermark.

If you are a regular reader, you may have seen the NewsBlog 5000 star in other places.

I was already laughing, but then the Yanni thing made me choke on my salad. Excellent response. And in full color I can see that it is a tipped star, not an inverted one. Clever.
I see the devil at work here.
Great logo! It really looks good on the cigarettes. But, why can't i see it on the background?
Likely the contrast of your monitor.
