top-100-brands-of-the-world-2011If you do a careful analysis of logos of top 100 money making brands then you will definitely find a few similarities among these logos which are definitely not a coincidence. Getting to know about these similarities may help us in creating a great logo. Following are top three things common in famous logos.

1.     Simplicity

The most obvious thing in majority of the popular logos is their simplicity. They are designed in such a way that they can easily be seen and understand even in small size. Consider the logo of Nokia, Coca Cola, and Microsoft etc. All of them are simply written.

2.     Use of Just one or Two Colors

Another most obvious thing in some of the top logos of money making companies is that they have just one or two colors in them. Take the example of Coca Cola, MacDonald, Samsung, Canon, Dell, HP etc.

3.     Use of Blue And Red Color

Most of the people have never noticed that 50% of the top logos have blue or red color in them. Some of the examples include Coca Cola, Samsung, Nokia, HP, Canon, Xerox, Intel, KFC etc. There is a specific purpose of using these two colors in logos. Blue is frequently used by businessmen as this color shows professionalism and trust. Red on the other hand, shows intensity, energy, strength and passion.

Though, there is no secret formula to creating the best logo yet little things like simplicity and selection of right color in right area helps a lot in creating a unique logo that stands out in the crowd.

transformers-4

Who wouldn’t forget their first Transformers toy?

 

Back then this toy was so simple that 3 yr old kids can build it in a heartbeat but these past years the Transformers toys have became too time-consuming, mind-boggling 1000 piece puzzles that only adult toy collectors can enjoy playing them.

But that’s all about to change as Hasbro takes a step back and a closer look at their roots.

Inspired by the Transformers movie franchises, Hasbro assigned their designers to “reconceive” these robots so kids (and kids at heart) of all ages will enjoy playing them.

Now, the robots will take on a new look, buttons will be added to transform them into vehicles in seconds and flicking a hand or wrist will render a complete transformation. 

 

 Transformers-4-Wallpaper-transformers-4-35116667-1080-607

These timely changes were done in preparation for the release of the 4th sequel of the movie, Transforners: Age of Extinction this coming June 27, 2014.

Hasbro is hoping this would increase their sales in hitting the main target of their products which is mainly the children. These new robots will be available next week in London at Toy Fair.

Toy collectors need not worry, Hasbro will still continue to make their favorite ‘complicated and sophisticated’ robots specially for them.
