Logos That Make You Go Hmmm …

A Style

The A-style brand image is a masterfully clever logo. It is driving a young company to international recognition and once you’ve realized what the innocent A signifies, its symbolic nature leaps out at you. Beginning with street level buzz marketing tactics, the Italian A-style logo has systematically used the most cost-efficient marketing methods to develop an international awareness using its provocative imagery. Over recent years we have seen the rise of savvy street brands with defiant brain-slapping names such as Pornstar and FCUK, but A-style has pushed things several notches up the “i-can’t-believe-they-can-get-away-with-that” scale. Originally commercially invigorated with street stickers and stencils, A-style has used street-level buzz marketing to grow to international prominence and is now sponsoring global televised sport to deliver its in-yer-face branding. Does it press your buttons? It’s designed to do so! And prepare for more subversive marketing, as it’s clearly very effective .

The concept is a sun rising behind a Japanese tea house.

But the immediate is, well, less serene.

Among the other things that these digital doctors can make you think they can work on.

The kind of medicine you can rely on?

  1. amusing logos. visuals that one giggles to. Logos that lean on ‘subversive marketing’ is effective for lifestyle products. I doubt if it works the same way for organizations or industries with a conservative nature – like a church group.
