It is called Surefire Logos.

It has been a long 18 months since I have posted on my design blog.
A lot of things have happened that prevented me from writing.
1. Finished building our new house and moved
2. Quit the ratrace and went into working for myself full time as a freelance graphic design
3. Had a beautiful baby daughter.
BUT NO MORE EXCUSES!
I am going to write on here at least once a week with new critiques and design projects that I am working on.
I look forward to hearing you feedback!
I recently opened a store for my graphic design services through bigcartel.com

The stock photography provider Shutterstock rolled out their new logo this last week.
In my opinion it is just another logo redesign that really doesn’t add to the company at all. Neither logo (old or new) does anything for me. The new logo distances itself from any correlation with photography. I also think that there is a huge disconnected with the words Shutterstock and Images. It is neither clean or as iconic and memorable as their stock photography counterpart iStock. I could not find a press release of the logo. So if anyone can find one, let me know and I will link it.

I have not posted in a while. But I have been able to collect a bunch of new articles for the blog, so stayed tuned. I should have a influx of entries in the coming days and weeks.
This set of posters for the new Batman movie “The Dark Knight” as really amazing. Personally, this is the movie that I have the most desire to see this summer. These posters helped fuel this desire any more.
Enjoy. They are a feast on the eyes.
I love me a good movie poster! I think that a nice movie poster along with a good trailer go along way in making the movie successful.
Here are some posters from the Summer 2008 movie season that I though were really amazing.
I think that this works great. Simple and impactful.
A strong image of Angelina Jolie. Is much more really needed.
Disney’s graphic team always does it right when it comes to movie posters for their Pixar films.
I love the distressed and desperation that this post emits.
I loved the imagery used in this movie and it carried over onto the poster. The bright colors just pull you in.
This movie came out in the Spring, but this poster is amazing.
I am a sucker for the burst in the background. Plus I think that this poster has a great focal point.
The first Iron Man poster is one of my favorite of the season. Amazing.
Very cool poster. Now let’s see if the movie will be any good.
I love almost anything that is involved with Frank Miller. Everthing is so vivid, even with just the black and the red.
I am scared already, but somehow feel that I will be dissappointed in the end.
These one really caught my eye. There is one set of movie poster that stood above the rest. But it deserves a post of its own.
Starz has recently redesigned the logo for their company. Something personally I had been hoping for some time now. I am glad to see them get rid of the big star and something contained in their text. The subtle nature of the star is great and the text is modern. Good job Starz.
March 31, 2008 – “Starz Entertainment on Monday unveiled a $25 million brand and marketing initiative that will include a new logo, a new on-air look and an integrated advertising campaign on-air and online.
The aim of the campaign is to “drive home the company’s passion to bring the best entertainment experience to its viewers with a variety of different programming across multiple Starz delivery platforms,” the company said.
Starz added that the yearlong brand campaign — dubbed “Are You Ready?” — is the company’s largest long-term brand investment since 2002. The new identity will run across the six Starz standard-definition channels and the four HD channels, with the new logo debuting on-air April 2.”
