Logo and Art: Famous Logos Merged with Classical Paintings by Eisen Bernard Bernardo

Logo and Art: An examination of art and consumerism; of expression and function; of personal and corporate.

Logo and Art is another wonderful logo study by graphic designer, Eisen Bernard Bernardo, based in Los Baños, Philippines. When I say, ‘another wonderful’, I mean that Eisen has based this famous logo project off the back of a previous project, called: Mag+Art.

Just when you think, well I think anyway, that there could not be any further ideas for logo mash-up’s and interesting logo side projects, you are proved wrong.

Eisen has taken a handful of popular and famous brand logo designs, and masterfully merged them with similarly themed classic paintings. The result is like a window through the brand logo, into a classic interpretation of the logo design.

Few of my favourites, where the chosen classic painting really stands out, and add’s so much more character to the logo, includes the Apple logo, and NASA logo.

Probably would have to say the NASA logo (below) is my favourite; it’s stunning.
