Honest Logos

Swedish graphic designer Viktor Hertz has created a clever little series of logo flips that reveal the true nature of the companies behind the logos, and what they should probably be called.

I think I have seen some of these posted before but not this large set with all these Logos given an honest interpretation, and some of these are hilarious.

Brandversations


“There have always existed disputes among the competing parties, divergent opinions, while the fans of each brand were convinced that theirs was the best product. Last, but not least, the rivals have even conducted ad campaigns against the competing brands. This project mostly approaches the visual “conversations” between the company logos and the ways that they influence each other, hence the name of the project, Brandversations. It is a parallel between the modern and the old, some of the slogans dating back to the 40s and 50s.”


Taking logos you have gotten used to and presenting them in different forms, its an interesting concept seeing them this way. There are so many brands this would be interesting if it is applied to other brands. So many people live by some of these brands I wonder how they would take some of these pictures in.

Glow Stick Art

Bon Yurt’s viral yogurt ad features a group of artists possessing blenders, paint, and 700+ glasses; they build an insane equalizer type of contraption with tons of neon glow stick goo. I would love to try this but it looks like it took a lot of preparation and planning to perfect the painting and these techniques.

Wataniya 20/50 Ad

My hat goes off to Wataniya for an amazing advertisement, for 50 years of independence and 20 years of liberation. This ad really gives the feeling of love that we have for our country, and for those who have passed away. There is always a feeling of hope in Kuwait, you can always say we are a creative people and we try hard. I loved the old theater shows we had, they were funny and entertaining, and seeing Sheikh Jaber and Sheikh Saad always brings a warm feeling to my chest. Excellent work putting all this together!

Pirelli Tire Ads

I love these ads by Pirelli Tire which is very creative, who wants to burn out there tires. I think that all men at a certain level love to burn out his tires and Pirelli’s advertisement plays on these words to get the Ad across.

Pirelli’s genius ad company, Y&R, is behind this bevy of spots, and with excellent photography and a little clever word play, they’re sure to stick in your mind. So, the next time you go to put your tires through some serious punishment, remember Pirelli’s words on the subjects. Think of the tires.

View From Below

This is a different take on advertising from a creative Miami based production company. One Ad for the Madrid Subway system and the other is for the Nascar 500. You take a tour of Madrid from below as if the you are looking through glass, its a very nice ad even though I don’t have a clue what the guy is saying. The Nascar ad is pretty cool because its a different perspective for the oval races, you get to see the action as it happens which is a cool idea.

Darth Vader recording for TomTom GPS

Since I’m a huge fan of Star Wars and I love TomTom products this behind the scenes video is hilarious. TomTom are recording Darth Vader’s voice for directions, imagine hearing the voice of Darth Vader for your directions. And there are some pretty damn funny moments with this recording guy having a tough time with Darth Vader! And TomTom customers will be able to choose from Darth Vader and C-3PO; with Yoda and Han Solo to be available in the upcoming months for $12.95 each.
