There’s a cute piece over on Buzzfeed that renames all 32 NFL teams according to what their logos resemble, instead of what the team is actually called. For your enjoyment and discussion purposes, we’ll share the Bay Area entries.
F’rinstance, you may recognize this as the official sigil for the Oakland Raiders. According to Buzzfeed, this is actually the Oakland Swords ‘n’ Severed Heads. They left out that the severed head had an eyeball removed. Sloppy, sloppy.
And this design on the right, which breaks out of grayscale, is for the San Francisco Forty-Niners, right? Not if you name the team starting from the logo. Then it’s the San Francisco Abbreviations for San Francisco.
Here’s one more, and also from California. Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together for the San Diego Cartoon Character’s Hair!
I hope you see where this is leading.
Here is the corporate logo for a major tech firm, including a couple of guesses on how the image may evolve. Got any better names for this company than the first thing that pops into your mind? The far-future version looks more like Pac-Man.
Not a Bay Area company, but quite familiar to us. Again, the last three entries are inspired guesses. What is this a logo for, shampoo? Contortionist classes?
This one’s tech-related plus the 21 December meteor strike leads to severe climate change.
Flags getting bricked, vaporized, sliced, englobed, dissolved and now, speaking of flags…
A new logo was announced earlier this year. Here’s the redesigned Greek flag at left, ready for when they leave the European Union. We say it’s a Chanukah present.
Then the corporate parent got a logo update. But when they changed the flag for the whole EU to go with… We call it FourSquare®: A Way To Make You Pay $40 for a Game Court You Could Draw with a Piece of Chalk (ball not included).
Can you identify these tech company logos? More importantly, can you name these tech companies based on what each logo looks like? We get
- 8 purple magnets
- A half-screened green eye
- Red cable-wrapped beachball
- Now landing on red runway 1
Surely you can do better than this. In fact, surely you can do best of all with this one at right. Or discuss anything else you wish in this Open Thread.
