3 perils of crowdsourcing in logo design

November 7th, 2014

In the recent years, the amount of crowdsourcing companies that provide logo design services for a fraction of the price has skyrocketed, and more and more people are getting hooked on this sort of services. But is that really something to be happy about? After all, the saying goes that if something is too good to be true, it probably is. Crowdsourcing logo design is no exception – the tempting premise diverts a buyer’s attention away from several crucial flaws.

Microsoft replaces Nokia Lumia logo

October 31st, 2014

In the late 90s and early 00s, Nokia was the ‘must-have’ mobile phone brand – who didn’t have a Nokia 3310? But, failing to keep pace with the rapidly evolving smartphone market, the cellphone arm of the Finnish comms company suffered and was sold to US tech giant Microsoft in 2014.

 

Though the Nokia logo has so far co-existed alongside Microsoft Mobile, the end is now nigh for Nokia-branded phones. Its flagship smartphone – originally branded as the Nokia Lumia Windows Smartphone, is now dropping the untrendy Nokia tag altogether.

Here’s the new Lumia branding: very definitely a Microsoft phone now, featuring the signature Microsoft flag. Interestingly, the brand name Lumia has also disappeared from the phone!

Responsible advertising: should certain brands be banned from children?

October 22nd, 2014

 

Advertising in the world of sport is big business. Not only are there advertisements on and around the pitch or court, but almost every single athlete or sports personality also wears at least one sponsored brand on their clothing.

In British football (soccer), every team has a big corporate sponsor, ranging from telecommunications companies to financial institutions to airlines to high street brands. In short, almost any company that has enough cash to pay for the publicity can bid to feature on the front of a team’s kit.

What is your take on fakes? Is Moschino logo belt the most faked accessory?

October 17th, 2014

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but counterfeit goods cost the design industry billions of dollars each year.

When it comes to fakes and the real deal, sometimes the difference is very obvious. I remember holidaying in Greece when I was younger and seeing laughing at the misspelled brand names for sale in the local market - “Adibas”, “Pansoanic” and “Reebock” spring to mind. Why buys these things?!

Sometimes the difference is not in the spelling but the quality. Famous prints like Burberry tartan or the Louis Vuitton logo are seen not just on genuine designer bags and clothing in high end stores, but also on copycat goods made from plasticky, cheap materials sold on market stalls and in low-end wholesalers. 

I recently read an article in the newspaper which asked the question, “Is Moschino’s logo belt [below] the most faked accessory?”

Daredevil logo design, and more from Marvel Comics

October 16th, 2014

Superheroes are so hot right now.

Over the last few years, it seems as though a new big screen adaptation of a Marvel comic book favourite has been released every other week. As well as the Spiderman and Superman remakes, recent cinematic highlights have included Iron man 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. Further comic book releases are due to hit our screens in 2015.

But it’s not just the big screen that is enjoying Marvel-lous success. Off the back of the success of TV boxset series such as Breaking Bad, Homeland and The Wire, we are now entering a new era of serial comic book adaptations for the small screen. Gotham, a Batman spin-off charting the rise of Commissioner Gordon before Batman’s arrival in the city is due to hit screen very soon, and press coverage has started to ramp up for the launch of another superhero TV series in 2015: Daredevil.

August 8th, 2014

In 2009, Pepsi spent a rumored one million dollars to revamp their logo design. The company was ridiculed in the mainstream media for the exuberant amount of money it spent and insult was added to injury when graphic design artist Lawrence Yang further ridiculed the design by creating a sketch of an obese “Pepsi Man,” highlighting the negative health effects of sugary soft drinks.
