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.

Pepsi's Logo Mishap

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.

Sports field logo design

June 17th, 2014

Once upon a time, sports fields were green. Sometimes with subtle stripes mown into the lawn, and white painted boundary lines approproate to the sport, but in general, pitches were green as grass.

But advertising at sporting fixtures has become such big business that companies must now be increasingly innovative with their product placement.

Uniqlo lets customers choose their t-shirt design

May 20th, 2014

Uniqlo’s unique selling point has always been that it offers simply designed clothes, in high quality fabrics, in a wide range of colors to facilitate the creation of a mix and matchable capsule wardrobe. But with the launch of a new Uniqlo range, it seems that the Japanese clothing giant is moving away from a wardrobe-by-numbers approach and is letting its customers get a bit more creative.

Netflix logo “refreshed”

May 16th, 2014

Movie rental subscription service Netflix has been around now for almost twenty years. A lot has changed during that time; mostly recently Netflix’s logo design.

When Netflix first started, the only way you could use it to watch movies and TV box sets was to create a wishlist of titles online, and then wait for the physical DVDs to be delivered to your door. Back then, in the late 1990s, Netflix’s logo was designed to catch the eye among the other envelopes that arrived in the mail; it was all bold, shadowed type and a bright red, black and white pallette.

PayPal’s new logo design no longer resembles a car park icon

May 8th, 2014

In a recent brand survey conducted on behalf of money exchange giant PayPal, findings indicated that most people recognise PayPal as a brand and something to do with online money, but few were sure of what, exactly, PayPal actually does…

And so with the launch of a new mobile payment service, PayPal has taken the opportunity to refresh its image with a new logo design.
