How Much Did Famous Logos Cost to Design? [PICS]

With price ranges that stretch from $0 to $211,000,000, one has to ask: What is the value of truly iconic logo design?

 

The Internet tends to throw a fit when big brands change their logos — so much so that some brands decide to drop the new look and revert back to the older version. (Remember Gap?) With a brand’s visual corporate identity at stake, a logo change is no small task.

 

Stock Logos, the largest identity design community, recently compiled a list of famous logos, highlighting their cost, designers and purpose. With price ranges that stretch from $0 to $211,000,000, one has to ask: What is the value of a logo? What does it take to create an icon? And can it be done for free?

 

Another great example is the recent Microsoft logo, which was recently updated for the first time in 25 years. The price tag? According to the Seattle Times, the tech company leveraged its employees’ design skills to develop the new identity for free. The cost could’ve easily scaled up to half a million had they decided to employ a design firm. Can we expect more brands to take this route as they seek ways to cut cost and be more efficient?

The hidden meaning behind really good logos


See on Scoop.itGabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives

One feature that can make a logo shine more than any other is hidden meaning.

Remember the last time you saw a logo that made you go ‘Ahaaa!’? So, that’s what I’m going to approach in this article, the cherry on the top of the logo cake.

There are plenty of articles that skirt around this topic on the web, but too many think that hidden meaning is just about negative space; that’s wrong.

There’s much more to hidden meaning than just using negative space. While negative space does help to create good logos, it’s the actual concept behind it that makes the big difference.

So what the heck? Let’s take a look at some really cool examples. Even if you have seen these before, you’ll probably end up learning something interesting by reading the details.

Starting as early as age three, kids can recognize and match logos to their respective brands, whether the Disney Channel or Camel. Since we’re surrounded by them every day, brand marks form an indelible part of our collective visual memory. And while they may seem like immutable features of the cultural landscape, they actually evolve with changing times, as companies pour millions of dollars into rebranding efforts in the hopes of appealing to current tastes. Logo Life (BIS Publishers), a new book by Ron van der Vlugt, compiles the stories behind 100 famous logos, from Apple and Adidas to Nike and Volkswagen, providing graphic histories of some of the world’s most influential companies.

The World’s Top 20 Social Brands – Forbes


See on Scoop.itGabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives

If brands won social awards, then National Amusements, Inc., a Viacom company, would own the title of most powerful social business. The index ranking, according to Dachis Group, “Analyzes the effectiveness of strategies and tactics organizations employ to engage the market through social channels.”

I’m surprised by some of the companies on the top 20 list as I haven’t personally seen much from L’Oreal, Nestle or the Discovery Channel, but then again, I’m not tuned in those areas. The rest seem plausible to me.

So why is this important?

The standard answer is that we need to recognize brands that are leading the way in social business. The real answer is that business leaders need better corporate role models. We need organizations who will convey to those leaders that becoming a social business is the smarter path. That the old playbook will not work in the new social age, and that becoming a social business will increase the company’s ability to adapt to market changes and take advantage of new revenue opportunities.

A business that only uses traditional marketing will produce suboptimal results, and will, in time, fade from being a great business – no matter how much of a lead it has now.

That’s something a lot of companies are learning –even today.

The best and worst brands on Instagram


See on Scoop.itGabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives

About 40 percent of top brands use Instagram. But that doesn’t mean they use it well. Check out these examples of the best uses (and abuses) of this popular visual platform.

 

With the launch of social networks like Instagram and Pinterest — and, of course, Facebook’s dive into Timeline — social is transforming into a visual world. It’s becoming increasingly important to show instead of tell. Show your audience that cheeseburger that’s on special this week. Show your fans that picture of your gorgeous car driving off into the sunset.

 

About 40 percent of top brands use Instagram. But that doesn’t mean they use it well. Some brands are using Instagram as a way to reach specific demographics within their audiences, to showcase their creative sides, or to humanize their brands. Others are using it without moderation or maintenance, to cross-promote or advertise their content from platform to platform, or in an entirely unengaging way.

 

Let’s take a look at some of the best and the worst brands on Instagram. Consider this your checklist of what to do — and what not to do — on the platform.

The Challenge of Creating a Connection Between Multiple Brands


See on Scoop.itGabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives

So you have been developing your online brand identity, making sure that your website is both enticing and user friendly. But, now imagine this challenge:

“There are five brands within a larger corporate brand. Each brand is required maintain their own online identity, but must also stay connected to the parent company.”

Yeah, I would define that as a very large, but very exciting challenge.

 

However, this is only one scenario for a company comprised of multiple brands. For one company it may be better to keep the brands separate (not creating any connection between the online identities of each brand), while for another company it may be best to completely intertwine all the brands under one umbrella. There is not a single answer for if and how a parent company should connect their various brands online, but below are a few examples of possible routes.

Creating Connections Between Multiple Brands

The following is a breakdown of the different approaches that parent companies have used to connect (or not connect) their brands together. Using real-life examples, I show how some companies have been able to successfully implement strategies to either connect or maintain separate brand identities, and how “consistency” and “connection” seems to got lost in translation for other companies.

How Brands Will Carry On the Social Conversation In 2013


See on Scoop.itGabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives

What will brands and consumers talk about in 2013?

 

SUMMARY: The Olympics and the U.S. election gave brands a plethora of easy conversation-starters to kindle conversations with their customers, writes Marcus Fischer. It will be harder to keep conversations flowing in 2013, so brands will need to work to ensure their social media presences don’t stagnate. “In the absence of a shared agenda, brands are going to have to create their own conversations,” Fischer writes.
