Different SE sites have site specific artwork (love the one on Gaming.SE)..
So my question is who will make one for chem.SE ... the chem.SE users or someone from stack exchange??

The design of the graduated SE sites is done mostly by Jin and some sites by Sean Gallagher, both are SE employees. They sometimes hire external artists and designers for the design.

The users can give some input on the design, but it is finally created by SE.

  • $\begingroup$ True, but there is no reason to preempt users trying to give ideas for this or that aspect. They usually solicit ideas before they begin in earnest, and if people are able to come up with ideas for a longer period then all the better. $\endgroup$

An idea for the voting arrows...

I guess this is a triplet state

  • $\begingroup$ But it looks so.. so... academically black and white! I think I'm reading another journal article with those arrows! :( $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 24, 2014 at 13:04
