Evolution of logos  
evolution of corporate logos

Just something a coworker gave me a link to. It's actually pretty interesting. The Nazi origins of Volkswagon are pretty obvious in their original logo. And I had no idea the Mitsubishi logo was actually based on the crests of two Japanese families (one is a stack of three rhombuses, the other is three tea leaves in a star shape; the corporate logo splits the difference and uses the rhombuses from the one in the arrangement of the other).

Wow. The Boeing, Mazda and Audi logos really went through some drastic changes!

I don't get *your* logo though. "O" is obviously Obama, but's what's the "8"?

California's Prop 8, I think.

Ah. You and Gwalla are both in CA, so that makes sense.

You are correct, sir!

If the Nokia logo was still a giant fish, I'd buy their phones.
