How important is logo design? It’s so important that even fictional companies in movies need to have distinctive, eye-catching logos. Fauxgo is a website that compiles fake logos as they’re seen in the movies and on television and for anyone with even a passing interest in design, it’s a must-see. What’s especially fun about these is how instantly recognizable they are despite the fact that they don’t exist in the real world and often only appear in one movie (and in the background, at that). That’s a pretty valuable lesson for any aspiring designer out there: make sure people will remember your design forever, even if all they every get is the briefest of glances.
As you peruse the galleries, try to recall the movie and company name before you read the caption…you may be surprised by how often you get it right! We’ve included a few of our favorites after the jump.
