best/worst corporate logos - Page 5

post #61 of 487
The Nazi's just appropriated old runes and turned them into whatever political message they wanted to convey. Take the "˜SS' rune for example.

Regarding the Roundel, I never really liked it either as a logo when it comes to the sky-blue part. They should follow the VW (since they put a non-color version of their logo on their cars) way of incorporating the logo onto their cars. Although, its easier said than done.

For me, this is obligatory.

The logo:



And the crest:

To each his own-- I have always really liked the Roundel quite a lot. I think I actually enjoy the contrast that it ends up having with out being garish in the way that I find perhaps the Caddy logo, or hood ornaments ala Jaquar to be.

The only multicolored German-car-company logo I like:

Another great car logo:



It not only explains the company's philosophy, but their cars as well, both in execution and in name (Diablo, Murcielago, Gallardo).

This is the Stuttgart seal-- I think the Porsche symbol is based on this or...connected to it at least.

Here is the Bayern/Bavaria one

which I think, though have no basis for actually knowing may influence the Roundel.

In other words, I think there may be a connection between what cities the cars are made in and their logos. On the other hand MB is based out of Stuttgart as well so...maybe that blows my whole theory to hell.

Agreed. WWF is a masterful work of art.

Never seen that one before. I love it!

I love logos that have solid shapes and negative space (blank areas, such as the white in that panda) and they rely on the eye to fill in the space, instead of outlining it with a stroke. I think in general, thin lines in logos is kind of a lazy move. Sometimes it works well though, or is required, such as the 'm' logo I posted earlier, where it emulates an orbital ring.

Many of the old logos were quite well-designed.

LK what are your thoughts on the classic Nikon rangefinders? I find the SP quite handsome, though not as simply elegant as a black paint M3.
