A sweet version of the Alive logo from the dudes at Columbus Idea Foundry

During an interview with Columbus Idea Foundry co-founder Alex Bandar a while back, he and his cohorts cooked up this awesome version of the Alive logo.

Know what's sweet? Metal. Know what's sweeter? Metal being heated and cut with a hot torch. Wait for it...

Aww, yeah...

Bandar will be one of the speakers at the TEDx conference to be held Friday, Nov. 11, at COSI. Tickets go on sale Monday, Sept. 19. For info about it, check the story in this week's City: Life column.
