American Airlines gets a snazzy new look.
The new visual identity of the MIT Media Lab is inspired by the community it comprises: Highly creative people from all kinds of backgrounds come together, inspire each other and collaboratively develop a vision of the future.
Virb has gotten a beautiful identity redesign from Weightshift in anticipation of their upcoming release. Fantastic identity work aside, I can’t wait to try this new service.
Loving this conspiracy theory diagram from Brand New, covering the Missile Defense Agency identity. Yes, for those who are unaware, the new logo has received some criticism:
A slew of online publications are genuinely upset that the MDA logo looks like a combination of the Obama ‘08 campaign logo and the star and crescent moon symbol of Islam. Others have thrown in the Iranian Space Agency logo and the Soviet Union’s hammer and sickle flag, all as part of a series of codes that determine the agenda of the Obama administration. I threw in the Boeing logo just for kicks — hey, someone has failed to point out a corporate villain in all of this — and I also added perhaps the biggest oversight by the media, the use of Trajan. Cue Twilight Zone theme song.
