'Around the World' - Colourful Modern Vintage Posters Designed by Bo Lundberg
These 1960's Swedish inspired posters make me feel so happy when looking at them, and I was immediately drawn to them when I first spotted them on Bo's Pinterest board.
I'm also taken back to the gorgeous 1960's Air Canada poster that I posted a while back, when I see these posters from Bo. That's a very good thing by the way.
Around the world, cities and countries: Every now and then Bo tries to find time to come up with interpretations of different cities and countries.
He first imagined that he was a designer during the sixties who had been commissioned to design travel posters.
And if I'm not mistaken, that could quite well be Helvetica…

Really enjoying the modern vintage style logo designs by Patrick Macomber. Solid, clean and quite distinct in style with a good use of colour.

Found via Grain Edit.
Just a few days ago I posted some lovely examples of modern vintage logo designs by Wallace Design House, so continuing the modern vintage theme is another fine collection of modern vintage logos by Riley Cran.
Riley is also responsible for LostType.com.
These logo examples were just featured in Grain Edit, so you may have already seen these exact same logos, but if not then it's all about sharing and caring. :)
Although I do enjoy the colour designs there is something about the rawness of just black that really works for me with these modern vintages styles of logo designs.
The Swagapple logo, above, is a nice example of this, and if you visit Riley's website you will see how he has taken an element from the logo and turned it into a secondary logo mark. I like.
Also work checking out Riley's blog for more of the same.
Initial artwork for an ongoing project Tom & Teddy, this is pretty close to what the end logo will be like, finer details such as optimum spacing, colours etc are still being worked on. Further descriptions and a detailed logo process article to follow.
What follows is a brief outline of the brand.
Tom & Teddy is a premium beach and summer fashion brand, focusing on matching fashion wear for father and 'younger' son. Tom being the father and Teddy being his son.
The objective was to create a strong but clean type orientated brand mark, something that instilled a sense of a classy modern vintage style. One that would be straight forward to print onto clothing and various materials and that would also create a visual image of the differences between father and son, namely the physical size but also suggesting the protective nature of the father. A wordmark that would work well in mono as well as 2 colours, stamped onto a metal badge, branded onto a leather patch, stitched onto a shirt or just embossed onto a rubber badge.
Focusing then on these aspects, using a condensed font allowed for some snug fitting typography, killing two birds with one stone. Tom is clearly dominant, but is also out front, taking the lead and has a careful arm around his son.
The image below is a good example of the sort of brand imagery Tom & Teddy are aiming for.
A fashion conscious father and mother should be encouraged to check out the Tom & Teddy brand without feeling it looks cheesy or tacky. Possibly the mother would buy both father and son matching shorts as a gift or the father would just feel proud to buy himself and his son something cool and jazzy. That the actual brand mark when printed onto shirts and shorts should look cool as well as stylish.
This compact nature of the modern vintage style logotype allows for ultimate flexibly in the marketing and branding of Tommy & Teddy be on clothing, in retails shops or online. Social media will play an important role in this brand, so the logo sizes down well for social media images and website favicon. Hopefully the only variations of the logo you will see will be differing colours and with or without a squared container.
Colours have yet to be confirmed, but this gives you an idea of how the logo can work easily with various colours and combinations without muddying the core identity.
The Gap brand mark has greatly inspired me for this project. I have been a long time fan of their blue block logo, and have appreciated how it can be used to market and brand the company. Looking at how Gap have used there logo over the years, minus their previous indiscretion, has been a valuable research example in the production of this logo for Tom & Teddy.
In reality the contained version of Tom & Teddy will be a secondary logo version, the primary logo will be floating free as shown in the very first two images.
