AKQA senior art director Andrew Wendling has, in his own words, “decided to finally give in and make the logo bigger” on his new Tumblr dedicated to enlarged versions of famous logos. We’re not sure where the perceived pressure for this project was coming from, but if you’re a design junky, this kind of thing should be right up your alley.
Logos featured on the site include Batman, Playboy, Starbucks, Red Bull, Panda Express, Shell, NBC, and others. So far the project includes two pages of blown-up logos, but check back for updates. Seeing the logos in the zoomed in, larger format does help cast them in a different light. The Starbucks logo, in particular, reveals details you might miss from the regular sized version.
This reminds us a little bit of Nick DiLallo and Doug Zaner’s project animating the evolution of famous logos, which we covered last month. Check out Wendling’s logo-enlarging project here, and sound off in the comments section with your opinion.
