    Yeah, BP has an unfortunately nice logo...

    Some of my favorite logo designs, though these are all rather different than the ones above:

    I remember Radiohead playing gigs in Oxford before they were famous, we're talking about 1990, and this posterwas billstickered over every wall in Oxford.

    it used to creep the fuck out of me.

    (actually i mean the image on this album cover was used in their billstickers, they hadnt released this album back then)

    Here are some really strong album covers and posters. Too bad I can't figure out who designed them.

    wow lots of awesome posters.

    What I like to check out is The Daily Heller, which is part of Print magazine. The website also has these great "images of the day" for inspiration.

    I found an amazing site today. It would be great for sci-fi reference. It's called the space collective.

    Here's one amazing abstract artist. His name is Andy Gilmore.



    Here is some random images

    I always liked the design on beer labels, even if it's a beer I don't like.

    These are truly nice - my father has an extensive collection of beer label designs (reaching over 4,000 unique brands from all over the world) and I have not seen most of the ones posted here...

    Thank you for sharing !

    I don't understand corporate branding. If somebody could explain why such a travesty must continuously exist I'd appreciate it. It's precisely why I gave up a graphic design as a career goal.
