My favourite logotypes from when I was a kid
I had a neighbour that was obsessed with soccer and especially Tottenham. At one time when he got back from England he gave me Nottingham Forest scarf. I didn’t (and still don’t) know anything about soccer, Nottingham or the Premier Cup but I really fell in love with the logo.
Forest’s current badge was created in
The New York Yankees logo is, and will forever be, my favourite logo. I love the quirkiness and the irregularities in it.
These days we are so obsessed with responsive logos, vector perfection and technical ranting that nobody in the world would come up with or accept a logo like the Yankees. If someone actually would we would all go «Are you kidding me?".
The best thing is that the Yankees has versions of the logo. The left one is their print logo and the right one is their jersey logo.
It was originally designed by Tiffany & Co. as part of a silver shield-shaped Medal of Valor depicting a woman placing a laurel wreath on a policeman’s head. It also contained the by-now-familiar interlocking letters “ny.” that would then become the Yankees logo.
This is the logo that the Astros used
Combine it with the unorthodox «tequila sunrise»-jerseys the Astros was wearing at the time and you’ll understand why it’s brilliant.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to ﬁnd out who drew or designed it.
When I was about
The Finnair logo was created in
Depeche Mode and their visuals have always been close to my heart. This, the speaker from the Music For The Masses period, is the symbol/icon that has stuck with me the most. I used to draw it everywhere and screen print it on shirts going to their concerts.
Martyn Atkins up with this idea of a speaker, but, to give the kind of ironic element which the title has, to put this speaker in a setting which wasn’t really to do with the masses at all. It was, in fact, the opposite. So you end up with this kind of eerie thing where you get these speakers or megaphones in the middle of a setting that doesn’t suit it at all, like a desert or whatever.

The logo of the hockey team in the town where I grew up. It also has that diy homedrawn feel to it.
