Facebook Is Changing Its Logo And You Probably Won't Even Notice

The screens, they are a’ changing. Facebook has tweaked its logo for the first time since 2005, and if I hadn’t pointed it out you, you probably wouldn’t have even noticed.


Funny Video Combines All The Major Movie Studio Intro Sequences Into One

Video: I’m always interested in tracking the changes that happen to movie studio intro sequences just to see the ridiculous flair they add to them now that they have the technology to do so. This video by Art404 pokes fun at all the studios by merging them into one epic sequence, as if all the studios collaborated to make one movie.


People Are Redesigning World Cup Sponsors' Logos To Protest Worker Abuse

FIFA is getting it from all sides right now, and for good reason. Last night the US Justice Department reportedly arrested officials for fraud related to the upcoming World Cups in Qatar and Russia. And even before the arrests, fans were protesting the use of forced labour at World Cup construction sites by hitting the event’s organisers where it hurts: Its sponsors.


I Can't Believe This Designer Can Draw All These Logos By Hand

Think you’ve got a good party trick? British designer Seb Lester can draw pixel-perfect logos with a few sweeps of his calligraphy pen. I watched in disbelief as he reproduced some fairly complex type using only his steady hand.


The Long Pointy History Behind Hillary's Brilliant Logo

Since the announcement of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was no secret, it was her campaign design that was the big reveal of the week. The giant blue H marched its way to the forefront of the breaking news, but at the centre of Clinton’s logo is another, far more critical graphic element: The arrow.


The Complete Visual History Of MGM's Iconic Roaring Lion Logo

I remember always being a little intimidated by MGM’s Leo the Lion logo as a kid (big cat! the roar!) so whenever I see the roaring lion logo pop up these days, it always gives me a tinge of nostalgia that no other movie studio logo does for me. It’s also the logo that has probably changed least over its nearly 100-year history.


The First Brand Manager Was A 1st Century Roman Glassblower 

Ennion made me. Those were the words that emerged as archeologists brushed centuries of dust off glass vessels in digs all over the classical world, again and again. But who was Ennion? And how, in the early years of the modern world, did he make so much glass?


The Complete Visual History Of The Walt Disney Logo Before Disney Movies

Ever since the Walt Disney Pictures logo debuted before The Black Cauldron in 1985, Disney has been tweaking and re-styling and creating multiple variations of the iconic magic castle logo that pops up right before its movies. For a while it’s a simple 2D logo stamped on a blue background but eventually it turned 3D with fireworks and a whole mess of effects.


Can You Recognise Popular Brand Logos Even If They Are In Chinese?

A good logo should be easily and universally recognised, even if it were written in Chinese. But sometimes it doesn’t work out that way. Chinatown, a project by Mehmet Gozetlik, shows how a famous logo can look both foreign and yet still somehow be recognisable at the same time. It’s like getting a glimpse of an alternate reality.


The Strange Medieval Origins Of Modern Logos 

When we think of early logos, we think of 19th and 20th century classics like Levi’s or Coke. But the origins of logos and trademarks go back way further than that — back thousands of years, when merchants and craftspeople used “merchant’s marks” to designate the origins of goods and their authors.
