How Corporate Logos Evolve

How Corporate Logos Evolve


How Corporate Logos Evolve

For today’s infographic, we have a look at the changes of various corporate companies over the years. No, it’s not about their trends of success or the quality of their products. This infographic is about what most people subconsciously relate to a company image: The Logo. You could have the worst or the best company or commercial service in the world, but if you don’t have a recognizable and simple logo, you don’t stand a chance with identifying with the consumer market. What a logo creates is something that people don’t really think about; a face to go along with a name. It creates the idea of craftsmanship and identity in a post-industrial world. It’s interesting to notice how the late 19th/ early 20th century logos used to be much more detailed and with a sense of personality. Visual modernism and minimalism obviously became more prominent as the years have passed, but in almost all of these logos I prefer the first images the most (I do like the new Pepsi logo for some reason though). It’s funny how design trends for well-established companies seem to get lamer as the years go on. I guess the sense of personality slowly wears down as their respective progenitors leave or pass away. Meh, food for thought. http://infografiks.in/s/bf Source: How Corporate Logos Evolve Infographic | Daily Infographic

A Brief Introduction to Typography

A Brief Introduction to Typography


A Brief Introduction to Typography

Typography is a key element of any graphic design. I would say that is the element. Can be designed using only good and properly typography. You do not need nothing else, the rest usually straw. However, outside the realm of graphic design, is a known issue and is not given the importance (hence the designers there, right?). Improper use of fonts, use fonts “prohibited” use default fonts, make people’s eyes bleed that gives minimal importance, and it does not take an expert to avoid these common mistakes. Any computer contains hundreds of pre-installed fonts to choose from and there are dozens of websites with thousands of free fonts, just some minimal knowledge and aesthetic taste. This infographic intend to explain the basics of typography and disseminate “best” ones that always work without very complicated life. A short walk through this fascinating world.

Why We Have a Seven Day Week and the Origin of the Names of the Days of the Week

Why We Have a Seven Day Week and the Origin of the Names of the Days of the Week

Two of the earliest known civilizations to use a seven day week were the Babylonians and the Jews. The Babylonians marked time with lunar months and it is thought by many scholars that this is why they chose a seven day week (though direct evidence of this being why they did this is scant). That being said, each lunar month was made up of several different cycles—on the first day, the first visible crescent appeared; on approximately the seventh, the waxing half-moon could be seen; on approximately the fourteenth, the full moon; on approximately the twenty-first, the waning half-moon; and on approximately the twenty-eighth, the last visible crescent. As you can see, each notable cycle is made up of about seven days, hence, the seven-day week. Source: Why We Have a Seven Day Week and the Origin of the Names of the Days of the Week

Gmail: 9 years and counting


Gmail: 9 years and counting

This April marks Gmail’s 9th birthday, and as year ten gets underway, it’s a good opportunity to look at how much has changed: the curse of the Bambino was broken, Martin Scorsese finally won an Oscar, and we stopped referencing Xena the Warrior Princess in our blogposts. And during that time, Gmail—and online communication as a whole—evolved too. So much of that evolution is a result of your feedback. In fact, Gmail was inspired by one user’s feedback that she was tired of struggling to find emails buried deep in her inbox. So we built a new email that leveraged the power of Google Search. You told us you were tired of spam, so we set to tackling that, and today your feedback makes it possible for Gmail to filter out well over 99% of incoming spam. You also said that you needed tools to deal with information overload, so we introduced Priority Inbox to help you manage your email (and we’re still exploring new ways to it even easier).
