A great piece of comical and witty logo re-design by Dave Spengeler for today’s post. He’s re-imagined famous logos to produce a fantastic range of what he calls ‘Hipster Branding’.
His reason for doing it was; “I’m fed up with the latest design trend. Everything has to be ‘vintage’ style, type has to be centered, all-caps, or written calligraphically. There are lobsters, birds, ribbons, anchors, crowns, arrows, crests, and the famous X everywhere. Personally I like this kind of style. But slowly but surely these clichés are getting overused.”
One thing that I have seen a lot of recently in the world of design is alternative movie posters. This kind of design has been somewhat spearheaded by Olly Moss, but I have managed to find work by many other designers that has caught my eye. I found so many in fact, that I thought I would put together a collection of my favourites for you to enjoy.
I was going to post about Benzanoe Issue 65 in today’s post, however I’ve decided to do that tomorrow after I found this great piece of advertising.
Coca-cola and their advertising campaigns are something which I have covered before on this blog, however I felt that this one, which won a Cannes Grand Prix this year was too good to not do a post about it. Designed by 20 year old Hong Kong student Jonathan Mak in conjunction with Coca-cola and Ogilvy & Mather Shanghai it takes the well known ribbon from the Coca-cola logo and transforms it into a hand passing another a bottle of Coke.
