A flag no more: Windows unveils the official Windows 8 logo

Ever since Windows 3.1, the Windows logo has been pretty much the same. It’s gained and lost a few little changes, but it’s always been a multicolored waving flag of some sort. Until Windows 8. Underscoring their new design and UI philosophy, the new Windows 8 logo is simple, clean and basic, and the flag is now a window pane looking into the future.

DC Comics officially unveils its new logo and it’s cooler than initially reported

Last week, DC Comics’ new logo was leaked and you got to hear me go all graphic designery and bitch and moan about how it’s not a bad logo, it’s just not a comic book company logo. Well in the officially unveiling today, DC revealed that the logo will be dynamic, differing slightly for various titles and characters. Okay, that’s sort of cool.

DC Comics unveils its shitty new logo

Well to be fair, the logo itself isn’t inherently shitty… it’s actually a pretty nice logo. But it’s not a logo for a comic book company. It’s a logo for a medium sized tech company or a food company or something. If someone like Dole Foods did this for a logo, it would be fine. But DC Comics? No.

HP gives themselves a new logo and identity package

HP’s got a brand new CEO in Meg Whitman, a new sense of purpose as they focus a little less on hardware and now they’ve given themselves a brand new logo. As a graphic designer, I like to see when companies do a little rebranding, but I’m not sure about HP’s new look. I wasn’t really a fan of the old one, but not a fan of the new one either.

Iran sends a strongly worded letter to the IOC, claiming the 2012 London logo spells “ZION”
Several years after the hideous London 2012 Olympics logo was unveiled, Iran sent a pissy letter to the International Olympic Committee, stating that they’ve uncovered the IOC’s sinister plot by hiding the word “Zion” in the logo. Obviously, Iran hasn’t realized a) the entire world isn’t out to get them and b) the difference between shitty design and global conspiracy.

An IOC official confirmed that the letter had been received, but insisted that the logo “represents the figure 2012, nothing else” while a London 2012 spokesman told The Guardian that “we are surprised that this complaint has been made now.”

This is the very unfortunate logo for the Swedish paper company, Locum.
Locum. That’s what it says. Get your mind out of the gutter.

New Gap logo: Awful design decision or really clever marketing ploy?

Yesterday, the Gap announced that it was changing its logo for the first time in 20 years. Their old logo is above on the left, with the new one on the right. Companies update their logos all the time as times change, but so rarely does a company known for its style throw out a pretty decent logo for something that’s just plain hideous.

So were the people at the Gap smoking crack or what? That’s what everyone was asking. Well…
