A Little Commercial Heraldry, Part 4
Still wandering about the streets of Canterbury, looking at heraldry and heraldry-like logos, I came across the offices of "Canterbury's top game studio", Burke & Best.
Their logo, on frosted glass panels on the front of their building at 81 Castle Street, demonstrate an interesting combination of both quasi-traditional (read, "staid") and non-traditional (read, "quirky") esthetics:
I know, I know! Sometimes I can be somewhat of a heraldry "purist", but I was really attracted to the quirky elements of this design, and especially those non-supporting "supporters". If a picture is "worth a thousand words", then this design is really saying a lot.
Spend some time looking carefully at it, and I think you will agree.
