Logolog: wit and lateral thinking in logo design

Logolog: wit and lateral thinking in logo design - logo inspiration gallery | Logo inspiration gallery. 27 Clothing Retailer Logos from New York City | BonFX Design Studio Let’s go shopping in New York City!

Let’s take a close look at 27 logotypes. One thing seems clear: most of these clothing store logos, many of which are from world-renowned companies, are very simple. It seems that in fashion, the brand is the storefront window, or the webpage, or the catalog, but in any case is not the logo. Logos are also used on clothing labels, and in many cases need to be stitched or embroidered at small sizes with few colors.

When I received the original Email from Roy of a famous New York Advertising Agency asking me to work for 'exposure' for one of his multimillion dollar clients, I was going to just let it go and chalk it up to another day, another non-paying offer in the life of an artist. We get this kind of nonsense all the time. After considering it for a couple of days, I decided that I didn't have to just accept this. I decided to reply to Mr. Hey Travis, My name is Roy and I'm an Associate Creative Director at a respected global ad agency in New York called ****. I really love your work and believe you would be perfect for this assignment, the only downfall is that because it is proactive, our budget is very slim to none. If you are interested in the project, please let me know and I'll send you a PDF of the idea. Hope to hear from you. Sincerely, Roy And, my reply; Hey Roy, Best regards,
