Free the Mallocs prototype logo

Based upon Karl's suggestion, I created a prototype logo for "Free the Mallocs" based on the idea of a circular "free" list.

Free the Mallocs

I'm not entirely happy with how the linked list came out as I couldn't get Omnigraffle to converge on a "perfect" circle. My attempts at constructing one by hand in Illustrator were a little better, but then I would have had to have drawn all the arrows by hand.

In any event, it is at least a starting point.

    Illustrator really doesn’t let you draw lines with arrow heads? I find that surprising for some reason.

    It\’s not that it doesn\’t let you draw arrows, it was just having to manually position them all myself. That\’s the nice thing about structured editors like Omnigraffle — you give the arrow are starting and ending point relative to other objects and have it maintain that relationship. Maybe Illustrator does actually have something like this and I haven\’t figured it out; it does have an abundance of features I\’ve never known about.
