Thu, 04/04/2013 - 14:08
We keep going through our weekly journey checking out great logos! We're thinking ahead and we want to find new topics, good ones, to share with you guys. Last week we had an awesome post featuring logos with chairs, and today we have here some great logos with buffalos and bisons!
Although you mind think they're different animals, you'll get surprised on how much people get these two mixed:
"Because bison in America resembled the buffalo of the old world, explorers also called them buffalo. Actually, the word buffalo is believed to have been used by English settlers. This term was said to have been a modification of the name 'les boeufs' which French explorers gave to oxen or cattle. The term evolved, and soon many variations such as 'buffler,' 'boeffle,' and 'buffilo' were used. Although the terms buffalo and bison are now used synonymously, the scientific name for the 'buffalo' found in America is bison. Bison = Artiodactyla Ruminata Bovidae.
The 'true' buffalo are often referred to as those in Asia or Africa. They belong to a different family than the American bison. The physical differences are more evident. These buffalo do not have a large hump and have a more slick appearance. African Buffalo = Syncerus caffer caffer and Syncerus caffer nanus. Asian Buffalo = Bubalus bubalis." - Fun Trivia
Every week we search through our favorite galleries: Logopond and Dribbble. Both are a great communities for designers everywhere. Also, if you you'd like to suggest ideas for the next subjects, please, tell me by sending me sending me a tweet: @paulogabriel. Cheers! ;)
