Please excuse the crudity of this model. I didn't have time to build it to scale or paint it... Err, actually painting it, is the only thing I did. Also it took Emacs a long time to move over from using ugly design, and I am afraid this might be considered a regression. If there is someone knowing what he/she is doing, please feel free to make this nicer. Also I will not be insulted if this PR would be rejected.
As I see it, there are several design elements that can be combined:
From the Emacs side we have the stylised E that was intended to resemble the Gnu's horns, we also have the purple sphere, that although rather new, is wildly excepted, and became part of the design element of the Emacs branding.
From the Rust side there is the industrial R, the gear, a rusty color pallet (that is unofficial but wildly used), and Ferris.
Any of those can be combined, including as suggested just the styling of the E with the R letter (or the other way around).
The main point, IMHO, is that for a long time the Emacs visuals where so ugly as to detract from its adoption, that stemmed for the fact the people involved where infatuated with the idea of combining the word Emacs with a image of a Gnu, with no regard to actual aesthetics and with no professional to help them with this regard. Please don't go that way with REmacs.

Svg files are attached. Scaling should not be an issue.…
