Logos after the financial crisis

With the recent financial crisis several companies have been redesigning their logos in an effort to better reflect their current status. I wanted to share them with you to help provide some perspective this week.

    Hey Tim,

    Funny stuff… everything that Blik is invovled in… looks as though some other designer has a lot of time on their hands… we all can use a bit of humor these days.

    Glad to be a part of the CofeBuz clan.

    To your success.

    Need to add Circuit City to the list. They just announced the immediate liquidation and closure of all stores.

    Say hello to a Best Buy monopoly — if they last.

    We posted something on this over at Visual Culture a while back and sourced Noquedan. Not sure if they were the original source. Great post!

    cheers

    add these as well:

    • standard and poor (the name says it all)
    • adidas (downward stripes)
    • Nortel (drop the ‘r’)
    • NYSE (use a broken window as a symbol)
    • Apple (use rotten apple)
    • MicroSoft (emphasis on ‘soft’)
    • FedEx (FedUp)

    could be a field day for a designer/comedian

    These are really great and yes FUNNY! It’s also bittersweet, because of the thousands of employees that rely on these corporations for their livelihood. Yes we need laughter, but we also need a solution.

    Great post!
