Since organic food is good not only for hipsters, European Union strives to promote it. Part of this promotion is the new mark for organic food produced in the EU, which we’re not sure if we like.
We’d certainly prefer if they’d chosen our competition entry, presented today.
As far as the competition goes, this mark failed, but we still like its warm, inviting, and very green appearance. Here are some mock packaging designs featuring the logo: a re:design soda can, and some extra virgin olive oil.
Gilmore Girls, that long gone (long in TV terms) already-classic show about what looked like two teenagers, except one was a mother and one a daughter and they lived in a totally unrealistic idealized town – is the kind of show I like to have on during ironing: I follow the stories as background noise but don’t really watch watch what’s happening. But as there wasn’t much ironing this week, we did this instead:
Of course, this is another in the series of hand-made typography and yes, it was all done manually, dot by dot by dot, you get the idea, to the accompaniment of fast-discussed Gilmore love troubles. It did take quite a few episodes, too.
Last year was celebrated as the year of Johannes Hevelius, an astronomer, beer brewer and city official. But mostly an astronomer, or we wouldn’t be celebrating him at all. We did a few projects connected with the anniversary and though today’s didn’t go anywhere in the end, we like the results nonetheless. Hevelius’ portrait was simplified into a logo.
This is Hevelius.
And this is a logo. You knew that.
He’s seeing stars.
One more (he was, against the appearances, not a musketeer).
A pity this project didn’t go further because who wouldn’t want Hevelius on a t-shirt. We would.
After part 1, part 2, and a short break a time has come for the, for now, final part of Iconic Painters. Same rules apply: three icons per painter, an answer in white to highlight underneath each poster.
This part contains some of our personal favorites (but so did the previous ones) and some we would probably find really hard to guess. Enjoy!
