Pushing the boundaries of logo manufacturing for lots of years.
December 3, 2010 6:39 AM   Subscribe

When you receive your Logonom logo, you’re not just opening a symbol, a brand or a small representation of you, you’re also opening peace of mind. And that’s something we’ve worked hard for 113 years to pack into each and every box.

It trips me out how perfectly they captured the current "announcer voice" and the "70s announcer voice" on the VOs. Very cleverly done!

Man, that is awesome. I love the 1970s video segment.

This is delightful. Thanks for this!

Any idea who's behind it?

Viral for a design firm. But they really deserve it because this video took a LOT of work. They really did build most of those logos!

Yes!

During the history of the company section, they showed some guys "in the 60s" looking at a graph on a dedicated, low-res display on a desk. I actually rewound a bit to watch that again to try to make out a manufacturer so I could get one myself before realizing it couldn't be real (embedded camera?).

DU -- I assumed it was the original Picturephone from the 1960s, or an attempt to make something that looked very much like it.

I hate virals with a passion. But you will get me every time with a viral that shows a scientist pointing at a periodic table and going 'aha'.

Ha! Fritz Schroeder (real name Gody?), appearing about halfway through, is actually one of the owners of the Chicago Brauhaus restaurant behind him. It's the sort of place where you pass around boots full of Stiegl. On weekend nights, it's always packed with old German couples and groups of young post-frat boys, and Gody and who i assume is his brother play cheesy wedding band music like the chicken dance and the song that plays in this link.

The dig on their location - said as being in "downtown Chicago" but really out in the far western suburbs - is sublime.

Yeah, that's where I stopped watching for fear of laughing too loudly at my desk.

"Logos are transformed into the desire to purchase goods and services, which in turn leads to higher quality of life" haha this is great.

I enjoyed that. Thanks.

His business expanded in the 50s. The brothers decided to merge the company with German logo-maker Das Nomenklature.

Netson: yup, looks like the one!

I dislike it myself, so I use an alternative codec that give the functionality without the actual Quicktime software.
