A pop up that I didn’t instantly close..

So here’s a pop up that I didn’t automatically close. Guinness just have that knack of doing stuff which catches your eye and this was no exception.

A video and a call to action. That was it. But it did the trick.

Funnily enough when I actually went to click through to see where it would take me, it went nowhere.

Identity and Branding from Noisy Decent Graphics

A while back Creative Review featured Mr Chicken. He’s the chap who designs all the Fried Chicken logos in London. Amazing stuff.Mrchicken-386x500

Another example of ‘how to do branding’ from a designer at the top of his game. I could easily have mentioned The Oak Room or continued work for MAD.

London went a bit logo mad including the dreadful experience of trying to create a Brand for London. When will they learn, the city doesn’t want or need a logo. Michael Johnson has a good round up here.

Of much more importance to London, the Olympic icons were launched. Just as I really like the 2012 logo (sorry David) I really like these icons. Actually, I don’t really like the black and white ones, but I love the colour ones and I really like the way it links in with the tube lines thing. Colourful, interesting, different. Exciting. Well done Someone.

And then right at the end of the year, because we all know heavy metal bands have the best logos we asked Christophe Szpajdel to design the new logo for RIG.
