Retro NASA Animated Logo

Super Cool Retro NASA Animated Logo ID

I absolutely love finding these retro animated NASA logo, video presentations. For a while, before I posted this, I actually thought it was a genuine NASA production, but turns out it was created by a Redditor, going by the user name _Charlie : I designed this retro-futuristic NASA logo animation, thought you guys would like it!

If fake NASA logos don’t do it for you, and you want genuine retro NASA animated logos, then check this post out: NASA’s ‘Worm’ Logo Animated in 70′s Groovy Fashion and includes 3 other Retro NASA animated logos, or video/TV idents.…

The So So Clever Fourteen Logo Design by WeAreMash

Fourteen Logo Design by WeAreMash

Fourteen logo design, by WeAreMash

It’s quite something when I am so tempted to say that the Fourteen logo design, by WeAreMash, is one of the sweetest logo designs I have seen, certainly this year.

It’s just so so fantastically clever.

MoleseyCo Logo Evolution-The Less than Perfect Side to a Logo Designs Development

I just felt the urge to share this quick image that showed the very first digital mock-ups, of what was to become, the MoleseyCo Clothing brand logo mascot, emblem and overall brand icon. One has to start somewhere, and it’s usually a bloody awful start at that. I can laugh about it now, barely.

Shocker! A Logo Designer Who Didn’t Do Art School, College or University!

March 20, 2014

Shocker-Logo-Designer-didn't-got-to-College

That logo designer referenced in the post title is me. Yup. I didn’t go to any art or design based further education, and I get royally narked off when I hear creative toff’s toot their own ivory horn about how, “one can’t be a successful (define successful for a start) designer if one didn’t get the appropriate qualifications to show how awesomely creative one is.”

Update: Minutes after posting, a few people were exhibiting signs of emotional distress over my apparent blanket dissing of everyone who did experience further creative education.

THe original lego brick patent by Ole Kirk Christiansen

Came across this: The Original Lego Brick Patent (Filed 1958), by Godfred Kirk Christiansen, earlier this morning over on Khooll.com, and it was certainly an intriguing find to start off this Monday morning.

Helvetica Stout designed by Sasha Kischenko

This Helvetica Beer, Stout and Lager Cans project, designed by Sasha Kischenko, has been around a while, but it seemed to have slipped me by. Which bothers me…

There is hardly nothing on this earth that I wouldn’t mind, actually love, to see an alternative Helvetica version of. We have had the Helvetica Bike and Helvetica The Perfume: “The Scent of Nothing”, the gorgeous Helvetica Moleskines and a crap load of other Helvetica themed items.…

YorkUK Hosting

 

If you’ve been following me on Twitter over the last year, you might have seen the odd Tweet describing countless problems I had been experiencing on a daily occurrence with my website.

From having no problems whatsoever, hosted with York Networks since 2006, the last year or so had seen a complete downturn in site reliability and a deluge of hacks, attacks, bots and spam. …
