Branding is perhaps one of my favorite design elements to study, dissect, understand. The intellectual challenge of distilling an entire personality and presence into a single image is such a brilliant exercise! This execution has raised a number of eyebrows in the design community. I find it interesting—not necessarily amazing. Jut interesting.
Just a few weeks after the close of the last Olympics it’s already on my mind again, mostly because of the work that the VONOC creative services team has designed. I absolutely love the use of texture, especially the clean illustrations combining natural and man-made elements (like wood textures and forest-themed vectors) inside other shapes, nice vibrant gradients, and edgy splash graphics.
More of the design expressions can be found here with the homepage here, and video explaining the design (in part) here. Enjoy!
There are a billion (literally, I counted) logo archive compendium sites, and everyone blogging these days is adding to the noise. The best is still LogoLounge, with newcomer LogoPond trying to share some of the virtual market.
Saw this blog (54 Creative Logos) a few weeks ago on the dzineblog.com website highlighting some logos from Logo Pond: liked some more than others. I’ll list a few of my favs here.
