Mixed Marks & Logos by Nick Kumbari
Spanish Designer Lucas Gil-Turner came up with the idea was to create a collection of logos based on a selection of some of the most used and popular words in English. This workshop is inspired in the research analysis of over a billion words performed by Oxford Institution in association with The Oxford English Dictionary. The outcome of this research was the top 25 most common nouns. For more from Lucas Gil-Turner lucasgilturner.com.
In planning my itinerary for an upcoming trip to Portland, Oregon I discovered the city is home to more than 60 microbreweries. That's more than any other city in the world including Cologne, Germany. Brewpubs are scattered all about the city, some in renovated cinemas, others in historical landmark buildings that were otherwise destined for destruction. To pay homage to the beer capital of the world I've put together a quick gallery featuring logos of some of Portland's most notable brewers.
The most amazing thing about being a designer today is the possibility to create, distribute and get feedback on projects very quickly. That's a huge motivator, especially for personal projects where we have much more creative freedom to explore and learn. Case in point, the VARIG Logo Redesign from Leo Porto. VARIG was the biggest and most important airline in Brazil from the 60s to the 90s. It was founded in 1927 in Porto Alegre, my hometown. I remember drawing its logo in my school books and imagining flying with them. The logo was very classy, a golden compass.
