I amsterdam logo, victim of its huge success

The I amsterdam logotype in front of the Rijksmuseum has become a victim of its huge branding success! With an estimated 6 000 selfies a day taken infant of it, it became the cultural identity of the city overshadowing all other sights and events. The sculpture has now been unbolted and removed.

Alternative crazy Space Force logos...

The internet responds with more crazy Space Force logo design proposals.

Crazy Space Force logo designs

Trump's crazy Space Force, the planned 6th branch of the US military, is soliciting votes for its new logo from supporters.
