I asked a friend who is colorblind in the red spectrum about the visibility
of the logo in this image: http://i.imgur.com/u4jfv.jpg (disregard the JPEG
artifacts, Imgur doesn't like PNGs for some reason).
He said that he can see it fine, it doesn't disappear into the image.
Unfortunately I don't have a friend who is colorblind in the blues, but I
do see how in that case it could be a problem.
Also, I played with my screen brightness and contrast, and there are a few
settings where the logo disappears. However, with common "natural" settings
it appears quite visible.
