Inspired by Bold Symbols & Logos

I'm always inspired by bold symbols, simple shapes that send a message. While browsing around I found this collection of bold symbols, they were categorized as bank logos but as I'm not 100% sure I just called awesome bold symbols. These are not your typical fancy inspiration, but the very essence of design. Enjoy!

Logo Inspiration: Comic Characters

Everyone likes superheroes and other comic book characters. There is a plethora of stories and with subjects ranging from humor to the morbid. Comic books are deeply rooted in global culture, so that today we have several film adaptations of great box office. Something that is very interesting is when we see superheroes as brands, some of them are easily identifiable by color and shapes. I usually say that the most famous are precisely those that are most remembered. So I decided to make a selection with the logos of super heroes that I thought were the most important and also my favorites. Hope you enjoy it.
