Some stickers version 2 (beta) starter ideas


jr: hex-shaped stickers are better than circular stickers

John Jung: 3 or 4. Perhaps we should add something on the sticker that states that this is about persistent identifiers? I have access to Adobe Illustrator if that helps

dw: could  add URL into the boat to be more compact, but I don't feel strongly; like adding "persistent ids"; maybe try adding words on side of ship for compactness; maybe using ark:99166 (organizational NAAN) as a self-referential ARK for the ARK Alliance?

Maria Gould : Combination of 4 (ARK Alliance above) and 3 ( below), but not separating the url like in 5.

jj: I like that the boards have a gap at the bow, to make it a 3d object

dw: incidentally, why don't we use the "arks" topic ("github topic") in our github repo, like does? (the "ark" topic gets lots of stuff that would not work well for us)
