Hipster Branding—Holding up a mirror to the artsy community is a super cheeky logo and brand project by Dave Spengeler on Tumblr.

There are certainly a few points to take away from looking at the first few logo interpretations, and fortunately I am not an overly hipster arty type according to Dave's formula. The logo directly above is certainly one of the more recent and common place design trends/clichés for which my own TPA logo fits a little too perfectly.

Just shove in 4 diagonal lines, a few nicely spaced words and instant logo. Eek.

It can be all to easy to get sucked into a design style that is everywhere and takes quite a bit of self discipline to fight the automatic pilot to conform to the mass hipster masses.

But why Hipster? Maybe cliché or lazy is more appropriate.
