Video: Here's how channel signs — basically those big signs that hang above stores and restaurants across the world — are made. The Science Channel gives us a sneak of the way things are done and it's surprising that so much of it still requires the help of a human. It's not all robots! And it's actually a lot more work to shape vinyl and aluminium into letters and logos than you'd think.
The old logo uses a complicated serif font which can only be created using bezier curves. All together, it has 100 anchor points, resulting in a 6KB (6380 bytes) file. When compressed, the size comes down to 2KB (2145 bytes).
It's been a big day in the world of logos: First, Google revealed its brand new, sans serif emblem. Meanwhile, the scandal-stricken icon for Tokyo's 2020 Summer Olympics was officially killed today following plagiarism allegations. Fortunately, the Internet already has had some replacements in mind.
Google recently changed its logo a little, and now it has changed the logo even more. And it's actually a heck of a lot better. I kinda love it.
In 1988 Timothy Wilkinson, a British designer at frog design in Silicon Valley, was tasked with creating a logo for the biggest peripheral maker in the world: Logitech. The company kept Wilkinson's logo around for almost 30 years. And while it long seemed weird to me, it's also completely brilliant.
