Who’s inspiring whom? The advent of the internet has brought the world to our fingertips like never before. Images that we’ve never had access to, or could only see on TV or read in the news, are now in cyberspace. All awaiting our discovery… that is if you know where to look. Having the world so much closer, and on our screens, also means that we can see how more similar we all are. How we see our own immediate environments and how that inspires us. Including how businesses and organizations communicate their message through their identity. That probably explains the striking resemblance between the logo and corporate identity design of the above diverse companies, from different countries and industries.
