I know, I know every has hated on the Washington National’s W logo and how it looks a lot like the Walgreen’s logo but I found a logo that looks much more like National’s logo.
Seasoned son, MADE IN THE USA.
This cast iron skillet that I bought used at Eastern Market one weekend was, according to the internet, made between 1935-1959 and looks a lot like the stylized “W” in the Wagner Ware logo.
Sue Apfelbaum and Laura Forde drop an extra dope bit of anecdotal graphic history in a post for RedBullMusicAcademy. They dig up some fantastic tales behind some of the most epic logos in Nyc music history, the kind of logos that just have that instantaneous recognition and hit you in the chest like “pow!”
Who is that in the P.E. crosshairs? What logo was supposed to look like a guy getting his head punched in from behind? Which testosterone driven Hip Hop group’s logo was actually designed by an English woman?
Just from the mash up above, you know you need to check this out, HERE.

What better day for bad ideas than Monday? I just received an email promo for a new product that’s about as revolutionary as cracked pepper A-1 steak sauce…Jagermeister Spice. Really. I just hope it mixes well with my cake vodka, oh wait, no that’d ruin the experience, they suggest it “demands a different method of consumption: either neat, or as a room temperature shot.” Maybe they’ll do a cross promotion with a ‘steak house’ that actually allows A-1 on the premises.
As far as I’m concerned the only thing Jager really has going for it is that it does actually have a pretty phenomenal logo.
