Will the real Nike swoosh please stand up… !

It’s nice to know there are other bloggers out there who are intrigued by the same things I am: the quest to find similar logos and corporate identity. I’ve come across plenty, those who have a knack of fiddling with logos, flipping them over to see the result.

Like this blog, I’m just creative, where the blogger makes a case for Newport Cigarettes coming up with the famous Nike Swoosh Logo first… that is if you flip it over.

What happens when you smoke cigarettes and clean your shoes at the same time? You become the subject of a heavily anticipated documentary that you more or less can’t speak on. The reason being? To of the most recognizable brands in the world put a cease and desist order out on you.

That’s what happened to designer “Ari” when he noticed that Nike and Newport had virtually the same logo, save for the fact they’re flipped so no one can tell…

An interesting piece to say the least. Ari took the signature colors from Newport while borrowing the shoe design of Nike’s popular Air Force One, to mimick both brands, and created the Menthol 10, a limited edition sneaker.
