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.…Read More

They are a Shanghai-based creative team, and set out to, as a fun side-project, to reinterpret six Western brand logo designs into Chinese characters, whilst retaining the original look, feel and essence of the original logo.…Read More

It’s harsh, but let’s face some facts: Reebok has rarely been cool—using ‘rarely’ in this instance is an over generous application of the word ‘rarely’, and I also know that ‘cool’ is subjective—in all the years I have known the brand, and this is going back to the 1980′s where I remember my parents buying me Reebok’s for school, even back then, this was a shoe of shame.…Read More

Allowed some time to collect my thoughts, upon seeing the new Le Mans 24 Hours logo, before sharing. I always try to be—well not always, but try to try—constructive when I’m sharing my thoughts about a logo design created by another logo designer.
After all, there is no joy whatsoever in hearing negative remarks about ones own work. To be perfectly fair, and brutally honest, being any kind of artist immediately draws the spot-light upon you, be it for good or for worse, and well, we just ideally need to take the knock-downs with the re-ups.…Read More

Once in a while a rebrand (logo redesign ) comes along that simply looks like how it should have always been. By that I mean the revised logo simply looks like a natural evolution, but at the same time immediately becomes the ‘right’ look, almost immediately more appropriate, than the logo before. Not sure I’m explaining myself very well here.
To me the new Absolute logo, minus the ‘Country of Sweden’ & ‘Vodka’, works better than the logo with the additional lines.…Read More

Apparently, according to the Aviation Blog division of the DallasNew.com:
“Doug Parker, the new chief executive officer of American Airlines Group, told employees Monday that he’ll let them decide what the tail on AA jets should look like.
There will be two choices:
A. The new tail adopted last January by the old AA regime, or
B. The old tail that had been in use basically since 1968.…Read More

Totally love little logo trivia bits like this. Not sure I’ve actually seen, and took notice, of this particular design before, yet this version of the Coca-Cola logo was only designed, and used, for one whole year: 1890-1890.
Notice the adorable extra swirls and other fancy adornments. Awwww just so cute.
The previous Coca-Cola logo designed before it, even way back then, was more like the logo in we know and ‘love’ now.…Read More

This is a cool logo study into how easily we can tell whose tightly cropped logo belongs too, often just from the brands signature colour.
It’s, of course, a hook, the whole titled: “Make the logo bigger”, but whatever, you’re here or you’re elsewhere, reading about what Andrew has done on his Tumblr blog.…Read More

It’s not exactly breaking news this, but still, on a personal level, I do find things like this interesting. I really don’t have the foggiest idea if Marrissa was behind the flickr logo changing colours, or not: I’m just taking an educated guess.
I only noticed the colour changes when quickly looking at one of my flickr photographs on my iPhone (insincere apologies for the awfully rude photo).…Read More

If you are looking for a pretty complete run-through of the 1968 Mexico Olympics logo and graphic system (brand identity), then this is a pretty decent place to start.
Found a huge article over on Graphic Ambient that contains image-after-image of the Olympic logo and graphic system in real-world scenarios, as well as more deconstructed style logo images.
Lance Wyman was the main creative genius behind the 1968 Mexico Olympics Logotype as well as setting the tone for the rest of the Olympic identity:
The Mexico 1968 logotype, based on traditional forms from Mexican culture (above) as well as being 60′s Op-art kinetic typography, set the tone for the entire graphics system.…Read More
