Logos, Identities etc.

These are some logos from games systems/companies. What I find appealing with the logos is that they are simple. Out of the ones that have the logo written and the image, I like the image ones better. The reason for this is that it’s just more interesting to look at. I feel the logo for Namco isn’t working out much since it just letters and is plain. The others stand out because they have something either next to or within the named logo. I think the kind of brief that was set to create these kinds of logos were to get people interested and wanting more. These ident’s don’t last long but they are very remunerable. http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090818114909/mightandmagic/en/images/5/50/Dreamcast_logo.jpg http://nugfx.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Sony-PlayStation-Logo-final.jpg

It’s basic in what it shows, same with the music but I find that it is still very remunerable even today. http://www.logotypes101.com/logos/463/7B70EA9443DD546A5ED9438FCE1BE8C5/Nintendo_64.png

They all have something about their design that makes you remember them. What I also find appalling is how they are brightly coloured in and at how bold the writing is. Out of all of them I think that the fox logo is the least remunerable. The reason why I think this is because of its design, it just says its name with no image and it shares the same name as an animal. The concept of these ideas when the people where designing them probably were to make them stand out. The indents when they move are short, sweet and can be changed depending on the movie. This is something that I like about the DreamWorks and the Disney logos, they have stranded there logo animation but sometimes they give it a little movie twist. It also should be noted that Disney’s logo opening has changed slightly over the years, while it’s the same concept the technology has improved making it more 3d rather than drawn. I prefer the older versions.

What I like about these is that it is clear what they are. For example the Firefox is a fox that has a fire like colouring to it. Same goes for the hat trick it shows what it is. Out of these they are straight to the point and not very creative, so this works to its disadvantage as well as its advantage. For these ones I don’t think they had much of a brief to it, I think that there main goal was to identify with the name which is why they show what it’s called.
