Hey Google: Check out Baltimore's Google Fiber logo!
The folks behind the city's effort to lure the Google Fiber for Communities project to Baltimore roped in another creative volunteer: award-winning editorial cartoonist Kevin "Kal" Kallaugher.
Kal, who now works for The Economist magazine, was previously the sharp, smart and funny cartoonist for The Baltimore Sun. Kal designed the Baltimore-themed Google logo above, which also graces the official Website of Baltimore's Google Fiber effort.
In case you didn't know: a couple months ago, Google announced they would build an ultra-high-speed fiber-optic-based broadband network in a lucky community in the U.S. More than 1,100 cities and towns sent in applications to Google in hopes of getting the project. Baltimore was one of them. Communities across the country are literally begging for Google to take them into the next generation of broadband Internet.
If you're a fan of Kal's work (and an iPhone owner), you'll be happy to know he's got his own iPhone app that features his work. Check it out.
