    I wonder how many thousands of pounds this cost to redesign
  • Gunn
    I imagine a London Agency would need at least £200,000 to produce something of this high quality

    "I wonder how many thousands of pounds this cost to redesign" Falling for the old tabloid "this logo cost £100,000" to design bollocks I see! On another note, I feel sorry for the design agency who probably submitted some great designs and the client eventually decided on a tweaked version of what he already had.
  • Q
    In design, one invaluable rule (that you normally learn the hard way) is if you're presenting two really good ideas to a client, NEVER include a 3rd not-so-good idea just to make it look like you've done more work than you're showing... The client will always choose that 3rd crap idea. Facepalm

    I do wonder how these design companies can get away for charging for things like this. I could make something like that in 5 minutes, for free!
  • Alex
    Go on then Lee, pick any fairly well known logo and give it a redesign for us to have a look at. You know, if you've got five minutes going spare.

    I've always wondered what the relevance of the funny smile part in the Thomson logo was all about. Turns out it's part of a company called TUI and that makes up that part of the logo. Not particularly relevant to the UK though! As for the Argos ad - I suppose it's supposed to look like a smile - much like everybody's favourite company - Amazon's logo (although their "smile" also shows they have everything from A-Z)

    if we're talking logos then, hows about the simplicity of the FedEx logo, with its incidental design... Anyone know what i mean?
  • TFEB
    Q. Whats the difference between a £10,000 logo and a £100,000 logo? A. About £90,000 of bull shi*t

    You want me to waste my time? No ta! I think it's pretty obvious a 5 year old could come up with something like that.
  • Tom
    I could have done that for a tenner. (expenses for pub trip)
  • Ross
    @Q - I assume you mean the arrow ?
  • oliverreed
    It's makes me smile inside
  • Junkyard
    Come on Lee, it's only five minutes after all, and you don't want to look like you're just talking bullshit.
  • Q
    @Ross: yup, good innit

    Can't stand all these knobs who say "OMG THAT ONLY TAKES 5 MINUTES - MY FOUR YEAR OLD COULD DO THAT WITH PHOTOSHOP" Ok, your kid has Word too - get him to write a fucking bestseller! Better still, here's a pencil, draw a fucking Picasso! Something might be simple and only take a day to create, but there's 10 or 15 years experience behind why it'd work. As for people saying "OMG HOW CAN YOU SPEND £100K ON A LOGO" it's often not the logo, it's the identity kit, style guidelines, stationery,

    "As for people saying “OMG HOW CAN YOU SPEND £100K ON A LOGO” it’s often not the logo, it’s the identity kit, style guidelines, stationery," +1 If you honestly think £100,000 buys you a single piece of A4 with a logo on it and that's all you need, you're a moron.

    Having tried many of times to be creative, I have much respect for the high quality of work that designers do.

    @ Bob "If you honestly think £100,000 buys you a single piece of A4 with a logo on it and that’s all you need, you’re a moron" Thats right, you tell him Bob. Everyone knows its impossible for a single piece of A4 with a logo on it to be produced without an army of apple fanboys tooled up with the latest kit, a modern office with stocked fridge, xbox 360 and sleepstation, and copius amounts of creativity inducing substances. That said, this logo does rather look like a polished turd

    Not to mention this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/

    "As for people saying “OMG HOW CAN YOU SPEND £100K ON A LOGO” it’s often not the logo, it’s the identity kit, style guidelines, stationery" Completely Agree - tho it is a shit logo, identity kit, style guideline and stationery

    "Can’t stand all these knobs who say “OMG THAT ONLY TAKES 5 MINUTES – MY FOUR YEAR OLD COULD DO THAT WITH PHOTOSHOP” Ok, your kid has Word too – get him to write a fucking bestseller! Better still, here’s a pencil, draw a fucking Picasso!" But nobody claimed their 4yr old could write a quality novel/output quality artwork. Said 4yr old could knock out that logo however.

    I knew it wasn't just me who saw the Jet2.com in that logo...
