Posters Choice: Creative Ads

Standard

I picked this website because I agree with their theory that there is no way to get a second chance a making a first impression. These ads make you think outside of the box a little, and give humor to the ad. However, the message not only draws humor and gives a different perspective the ad builds the company’s brand also.

Design Trends – Logos

Just Creative Design


2011 Logo Design Trends

Logo Lounge, for the past nine years, has posted annual logo design trend reports and they

have just released the 2011 logo design trends report. I would love to hear your thoughts

on the showcased trends.

Do these identity / branding trends effect you or your process? Do you agree with these

suggestions? Have you noticed any other trends?
On this topic of trends, one should not follow trends for the sake of following them. As Bill

Gardner points out:

Every year, it’s worth noting that this is a report on trends, not a recipe book of styles.

It is also not a finite list: There are other valid trends out there that are not mentioned

here.  The report should serve you as an ongoing view of where logo design is headed. The word

“trends” in itself can have a very negative cast, but in truth, trends aren’t bad. They reveal

our growth. It’s our take on them that allows us to move even further forward.
