DailyDirt: Make The Logos Bigger, Better

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Logos can convey all kinds of messages -- and instill a sense of confidence or demonstrate a lack of attention to detail. Some logos are fun. Others are serious. Some company logos don't change very much over a long period of time, but others seem to change with every passing design fad. Some logo re-designs are more successful than others. Here are just a few interesting logo collections of some branding campaigns that you might recognize. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    trademark parody?

    Is it really okay to re-design logos without permission?

    It's funny to see how Sony's logo has remained largely unchanged. What really surprised me was that Nokia's logo used to be a fish. Also, Volkswagen's old logos looked rather fascistic.

    Oh, for heaven's sakes, of course it is really okay.

    Talk about the chilling effects of self-censorship.

    Big 10 + 2

    "The Big Ten collegiate conference logo has a little nod to the fact that there are actually eleven teams in its organization."

    Not anymore. They're up to 12 now.

    Olympics logo

    Who doesn't love the Olympics logo that looks like Lisa Simpson giving Bart a BJ?

    We like to pretend Penn State doesn't exist.
