Designer Christian Annyas has assembled a gallery of “100 logos from American and Canadian railroad companies,” dating from 1845 to 2000. They show a microcosm of a century and a half’s worth of evolution in design sensibility, but they also show just how lovely and evocative many of the logos of these forgotten railroads once were.

As new generations discover the band and its still relevant critiques, the symbol has been emblazoned on school bags and clothing and tattooed on bodies. Many “homages” have been made over the years, some the enjoyable work of genuine fans, others just blatant, barely altered rip-offs.
Consider the current case of London fashion house Hardware. Taking the original symbol, wrapping it with a chain and adding their name, they then copyrighted the symbol to use on clothing they say is “chic, glam and borderline trashy”. They may have crossed that border with their “Whorewear” line.
You can now see an exhibit of original designs for what became the Crass Symbol, plus early variations and contemporary “re-mixes”, at the zine store and gallery Goteblüd in San Francisco.

"I don’t love it," Phil Knight famously responded when it was first presented to him, "but maybe it will grow on me." It not only grew on Knight, it grew all over the culture — like kudzu with a profit motive. And this, in fact, is the more compelling reason for this particular logo’s “enduring power”: repetition. You can say all you like about the graphic properties of this commercial symbol or any other, but logos are a distinct category of visual, partly because of their specific relationship with repetition.

CNN reports that a couple from Long Island, N.Y. is seeking to trademark “Occupy  Wall Street” to sell T-shirts, bags and other items featuring the  phrase. Forget the obvious irony in the effort to make money off a  leaderless movement that rails against greed. Can the trademark-seeking  couple pull it off?

I’m most interested in the photo that went with the story, or rather the screen-printed (upcycled!) jacket — I gather there are printers on-site doing this for free. It’s not clear to me who created that particular logo/design this fellow is sporting. If you know: consumed@robwalker.net.

Carni K sent in an interesting story about Kellogg’s, the cereal company. Kellogg’s is suing the Maya  Archaeology Institute (MAI), a non-profit Guatemalan organization aimed  at protecting the local history, culture, and natural environment. Why?  It uses a toucan in its logo.
