I have to admit. I love this Atos Origin logo. Its just cool. But you may be asking, why do we have the FISH? I've done a little digging and here is the history I found behind it...lets take a look inside :)
Atos Origin and The Powder Blue Surgeonfish
Why the fish?
It is our logo. It was chosen when Atos was created. It has become not only a distinctive and recognizable logo but the symbol of our values which in turn differentiate us from our competitors.
Future and nature is already a fusion for me.
"According to the zoologist, future and nature in no way exclude each other because evolution, the constant development of all living things, is a future-orientated process, but however hard we try it is only understandable by us humans in the past tense." - Dr. Ekkehard Wolff.
If we take a superficial glance at the Atos Origin logo, one could say: "Yes, that is a fish; it is even a very beautiful fish."
Acanthurus leucosternon. In English it is simply known as "the surgeon." The genus name, Ancanthurus, tells us that there is a sting on its tail. A weapon of aggression of the highest efficiency, its appearance and effect lends to comparison with a medical scalpel, and has thus given the fish its academic title.
In short, the surgeonfish has come to represent some of the qualities and values of Atos Origin: it is agile, efficient, responsive, bright and convivial. It functions in symbiosis with its environment but it can be competitive and defend itself with a weapon of "highest efficiency".
From a technical point of view, the surgeon is a highly specialized aquatic vehicle, and thus undoubtedly suitable as the logo emblem of a technology firm.
