FIDM Alumni Design Logos for No Doubt Contest

Two FIDM Graphic Design Alumni have entered logo designs in a national contest for rock band, No Doubt. Seeking a logo for the band’s highly anticipated sixth studio album Push and Shove, No Doubt invited fans to create a logo that will be featured on band merchandise. (Click here to read more about this contest in a previous post).

The Grand Prize winner will be selected by No Doubt, and a People’s Choice Award will be given to the design with the highest number of public online votes, along with $1,000. Graphic designers Sivakumar Swaminathan and Eddie Perez both earned their Graphic Design degree from FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.

“The logo is an attempt to bridge the essence of rock music with the element of time. The essence of music , [the] ‘time signature’ in the negative space supports a double wordplay. The abstract guitar element inside the letter ‘O’ translates the world of rock music which has universal appeal, transcending culture, age, religion and language. The guitar is also synonymous with rock music. The logo is a modest attempt to portray the universal appeal of the rock band ‘No Doubt.'” –Sivakumar Swaminathan, FIDM Graphic Design Alumnus.

Ebay Debuts a New Logo

This Fall, Ebay sites will feature a sleek new logo, opting for slender sans serif letters that rest on a single plane to place the chunky overlapping letters of its predecessor, according to Advertising Age.

Designed in part by design and branding agency Lippincott, the new look was inspired by “today’s vibrant marketplace and sleeker experiences,” says Lippincott senior partner Su Matthews to Ad Age.
