  • I'm not very well-versed in sports specifics or history, but I've enjoyed browsing the Fleer Sticker Project blog. Though the blog's primary goal is cataloging Fleer team stickers included in card packs—namely baseball and football, the collected designs and photos show logo, product and technological evolution; packaging and branding history; and graphic design trends.

  • The New York Times commissioned this growing logo design for their fall 2011 travel issue. Los Angeles-based garden designer Judy Kameon designed and planted the iconic T, keeping in mind shape, texture and a selected color palette.

  • DKNG is the combined multidisciplinary studio of Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman. This project—a show poster for the band Explosions in the Sky—is especially beautiful, with a variety of graphic treatments and styles converging to create the final, mystical design (with a great color palette to boot).

  • DC Comics has unveiled a new identity, which—as is often the case with logo overhauls—has met it's fair share of criticism and praise. For fans and casual consumers alike, there's a lot of emotion tied to the former logo's association with so many wonderful stories. When you break that emotional bond, people feel strange. DC's '76 mark was a classic, the '05 remix was a departure but also ushered in a raft of DC-certified movies. Here in '12 we have a clean break from the past. I felt this way when UPS updated their logo.

  • As part of his bachelor graduation project at the Royal Academy of Arts, Frederic Brodbeck created these amazing movie fingerprints he calls 'cinemetrics'.

  • Zoran Lucić is a designer and illustrator in Bosnia and Herzegovina, who—like many fans—is a little fanatic about soccer / football. And thank goodness he loves the sport as much as he does, because I don't know if we would get to see these awesome posters otherwise.

  • They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If that's the case, a well-designed logo must be worth a million. It's something so simple, yet so loaded, it can make or break a business; instill trust and inspire respect from your patrons, or seriously rub them the wrong way. (Anyone remember the Gap logo redesign fiasco just a few months ago?) For the corporate behemoths, it's a universally recognized symbol synonymous with their products or services.

  • There's no denying it, 2011 was a rather eventful year. From the tragedy of Japan's earthquake and tsunami, to the pomp and circumstance of a British royal wedding; from Osama bin Laden's assassination to the sunsetting of NASA's space shuttle program. The human race experienced myriad groundbreaking and earthshaking events that rocked every corner, none perhaps so important as what is collectively known as the Arab Spring.
