My homegirl Sarah pointed me toward the work of designer Corey Holms who’s a Southern California designer who’s doing some rad projects. Since it’s Monday I like to stick to music related things so I’ll point to this logo variation he did for Depeche Mode’s album, Sounds of the Universe. Whereas the original version was some kinda rainbow colored pick-up-sticks match Corey’s version is a simple, embroidered version of the logo, though just the inner portion. I guess I think of it as showing restraint, that he didn’t go crazy, just came up with a clever alternative that is just as strong (if not a little bit better).
P.S. Corey has an amazing Flickr full of inspiring images, you should check them out as well.
