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.
I just did my “fav 6 blogs” post, but I came across another fav. Rather than re-post, I’ll add it in here:
