Breaking Down the Common Map Via Logos & Trademarks
After 2 years of hard work the the folks at City Maps recently launched their website and accompanying Android and iOS apps. For launch they’ve mapped New York, San Francisco and Austin, Texas. The application essentially breaks down the common map into location-based logos. Mouse-over a given logo and users are exposed to various offers/coupons and events.
Being a brand designer the app certainly got my attention but one of the first things I thought was what about the “mom & pop” places that don’t necessarily have a brand? How do they stand out amongst the pack? Time will tell I guess. Either way, genius idea… Take a look here…

The W3C Gave HTML5 a New Logo but What’s That Mean?
While the new HTML5 logo looks good, the FAQ that accompanies it is troubling. According to the W3C, the logo is “a general-purpose visual identity for a broad set of open web technologies, including HTML5, CSS, SVG, WOFF, and others.”
The logo’s not spectacular but I think it’s a good and sound design. I have a feeling however that, it may fade into the abyss.
