Did you know that the Cadillac emblem was inspired by a family crest of a nobleman who later turned out to be a fraud? Or that Volkswagen was Hitler's idea? We took a look at the evolution of tech logos before. Today, let's take a look at the fascinating stories behind the logos of some of the most popular cars in the world: Alfa Romeo Source: Cartype Surprise! Alfa Romeo's distinctive logo was created in 1910 by a draftsman named Romano Cattaneo. The Romeo part came in 1916 when Neapolitan businessman Nicola Romeo bought the company and converted its factories to produce munitions and machineries for World War I.

Teoría Diez Consejos para crear Logotipos No me gustan demasiado las recetas o tips para el Diseño, pero estos consejos son mas generales y son interesantes para tener en cuenta... 1. Considerar al cliente, la competencia y la compañía: El cliente o consumidor final debe sentirse identificado con el logo, no desarrolle un logo muy sofisticado si el cliente no lo entenderá ni tampoco apruebe un logo muy simple si el cliente no lo valorará. Analizar la competencia, los elementos gráficos que utiliza, su composición de colores, distribución de elementos, complejidad o simplicidad y especifique dónde quieres posicionarte contra los competidores. Su imagen gráfica debe ser congruente con la actividad de su compañía: no ser muy elegante si el mercado no lo necesita, y no ser muy simple si el mercado busca sofisticación, ya que no se le dará confianza al consumidor. 2. 4. 5. Tipografía. 7. 8. 10.

Drawing a Good Logo I just finished reading Lea’s great three part series on the Art of Self Branding (1, 2, 3). I thought I would share a bit about how my own thought process works. Specifically, I will talk about the influences and factors that went into branding the Godbit Project. At first, I wasn’t sure how well recieved the Godbit website would be, wondering if it would be percieved as just another cheezy Christian endeavor. Initial Attempt I must admit, that when I started planning for this site, I had two words in the back of my head, “Christian Stylegala.” While this design is visually appealing, after asking around (without saying what it was for), I found that it conjured up two things in people’s minds. Branding Influences It’s been said that art does not exist in a vacuum, and we are all influenced by what we have seen. If you’re from my generation (or older), you’ll no doubt remember computers such as the Apple II. Paying Homage —› Jonathan Snook —› Design by Fire —› Pixelgrazer Deity + Data

039;s Cafe [update] Starbucks logo changes again. You are probably here because you looked closely at the Starbucks logo and were a little confused about what is depicted on it. Is it a mermaid? What are those things that she is holding up with her hands? I asked those questions myself and did a little bit of digging. Basically, from what I gathered from different sources, including that book, there is a lot of confusion between the different mythological half-women. The whole sex-symbol status of mermaids hinges on the question which part is “woman” – upper or lower. Wise mythologists came up with the answer, of course. The book had an old engraving of a two-tailed mermaid. Notice that the graphic designer removed the belly button, the unattractive shading around the bulging tummy of the 15th century siren and merged the tail-legs to remove the suggestion of naughty bits. Here’s the “cigar band” logo from which I took the image above. Here is the current logo. [Update] Il Giornale logo:

300 Images From 1800 Sites I started gathering little, iconesque web images for myself so that I could compare, contrast, and study the techniques used by graphic artists on the web like Ben Sky. My initial pool of images looked so interesting that I decided to continue methodically hunting and capturing the icons for a public display piece. The purpose of this document is not to copy the intellectual property of others, but rather as a jumping-off point for your own unique web graphic projects. It's for Brainstorming, if you will. I roughly estimate that for every six web sites I scoured, I was able to acquire one graphic image. I visited only Fortune 1000 company sites, major online retailers, well known blogs, top advertising, publishing, and design agencies, technology and software industry leaders, and the very largest online news publishers. — Ro London Arrows Pictured below are some of the exceptions to the rule.
