  1. The red fuel cap on the mobile logo has a miraculous contrast with the other blue letters. The statue of liberty museum logo is pretty good too, interesting shapes and no solid outline also another good choice of colour. Thumbs up.


  2. I really like how simple Tom Geismar’s designs are but how easy they are to read and identify the product that there selling.

    His use of colour is great, I like how he usually uses two colour’s, highlighting one object that makes it easy to read and gives a good understanding of what the company’s about.
