Hipster Branding – Famous Logos Redesigned
German Designer Dave Spengeler had a great idea: Create hipster styled logos for brands we all know and love. For the ongoing project he launched the Hipster Branding Tumblr Blog. By utilizing hip icons, fonts and design elements the logo designs actually come out great. He takes full advantage of anchors, mustaches, Helvetica, glasses, and the big crossed lined X’s.
If you didn’t know by now, a Hipster is a person who follows the latest trends and fashions. The hipster is categorized by their party foul bike, messenger bag, too-tight jeans, vintage tee collection, headband over unkempt hair, too-large glasses and/or sunglasses. We believe that Dave is ironically making fun of hipsters and the current state of design. In some regard we can totally understand where he is coming from. One thing for sure is that we fully appreciate his creativity!
