Christophe Szpadjel designs logos for black metal bands for a living, so when Fast Company put him to the task of remaking the logos of some famous brands in the vein of the subculture, he obliged. Don’t know about you, but some of these, like the ones for Yahoo!, The New York Times, and the […]

We turned it over to you to shape the look of the new Lost At E Minor logo, one that sums up everything this site stands for and rolled up into a design that’s cool and readable. And we had a stack of very clever and creative submissions come in. So now we’d love to […]
