Branding Britannia

We’re really hoping you haven’t seen this link before, because we want to share with you the experience of finding it, thinking “wow, this is really cool” and mentally thanking the site on which you found out (which, in our case, was the beloved Brand Republic). It’s the British’s government’s Icons project, which hopes to figure out what makes England, England. They’ve been accepting submissions, tallying the results, then posting the findings on this brilliant, drool worthy page. It’s a great look at an entire culture, through something like branding and identity design work, and it’s tons of fun. So quit your job, head home, turn on the computer, and spend some time with the site. Wait. Did we just tell you to quit your job? Ah well. We’re sure you’ll end up fine.
