Originally, I was going to go with a [Warhammer 40,000 style Titan](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gargant) head, but then figured that a) that was hard to do and b) there could be copyright issues. So, after a little browse through Wikipedia on the subject of [titans](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titan_%28mythology%29), I discovered that the element [Titanium](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanium) is named from the titans and so this logo was born.
It displays the chemical symbol "Ti" and the atomic number "22" for titanium and has a brushed titanium-style effect as the background. It was simple to create in Expression Design and really simple to export to a XAML ResourceDictionary, which I can then use on the About dialog for Titan :).
