Recently I've noticed a lot of designs for logos, tshirts, etc. with an X shape with images around it. For instance this Hamilton shirt or this Twitter account. Are they all inspired by some historic flag design? It seems really familiar to me but I can't figure out what it is.
I'm making my first android app, a dinner party murder mystery complete with minigames, and I want to add a "fingerprint database" check, as shown here. The screen currently features a small picture of the FBI logo, and the text will make reference to the FBI. Is this within the bounds of fair use? [more inside]

On occasion, I see large-ish stickers of a red-and-white logo that have been put up on signs, utility boxes, construction hoardings, bus shelters, etc. The best way I can describe it is that it looks like a cross between the New England Patriots logo and a slightly abstract/geometic handgun.

I am trying to find an animal that fits the whole medicinal/body care/spa kind of vibe because I want to create a logo. I thought of swans, but I am looking for animals that could appeal to a broader demographic (if that makes any sense).

Our company once had a full fledged marketing department but after years of downsizing we're on our own. Some of my coworkers want to build brand awareness ahead of projects that will be rolling out in the new year. They have the green light from higher ups but no one knows what to do and where to start. How can self motivated individuals learn a crash course in business marketing? [more inside]

For Spirit Day, I'm trying to give my company's logo a purple filter (we're a small non-profit). I keep coming up with a million photoshop tutorials. For your purposes, our logo is on a royal blue background with white and green in the middle. Can someone talk me through how to give this all a purple glow so I can rep our company well? I have Photoshop. TIA.
In my distaste for brands I tend to remove tags from my clothing, but in one case this has backfired - I found a brand of jeans which fit me perfectly. Sans tag, all I have to go on is the imprint on the buttons. It's a shield with a pointed demon tail (tangential ask: what is that pointy thing called and where does it come from?). Can you ID my jeans? Here is a photo.

I am looking for online resources for logo design and branding that contain the creative briefs, brainstorming notes, sketches, design process, and full style guides for well-known projects. It doesn't have to have ALL these things, but the more it has, the better. Books are welcome too.
There is a men's clothing/accessories brand that has a logo that is a capital "B" with an "A" inscribed (can't remember if it is capital or lower case) inside the top loop of the "B". I don't have a picture of it. This is a recent and probably high-end brand. Is this familiar to anyone?
Hi, simple question here. My friends and I are designing logos on photoshop. We'd like to put the finished logos on some shirts what we'll probably wear for a marathon. I'd love to hear some recommendations on what reputable online sites you might have used - I found a a decent bunch of choices on google, but can't seem to find reviews so It'd be nice to have some anecdata.
I feel like I keep seeing the Transformers logo every time I go to Maryland. It's on people's bumpers, T-shirts, etc. Is this just confirmation bias, or is there some significance to this logo that is somehow connected to the state of Maryland? Is there a similar logo used for something that's local to MD?
Lately I've been noticing an increase in police vehicles in my neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. There is one in particular I see a lot but never get close enough to to read that has a shield with--I want to say--a blue, gold, and some green picture inside. It looks like there are some trees in it, maybe a river. Last night I saw one that said "Field Operations" on the back parked across the street. What agency has this car? [more inside]
Hi- This is driving me nuts. I'm trying to track down a men's shoe company. They make sneakers. The closest thing I have found is this: - http://media.ubm.com/images/ubm-logo.png. Really appreciate any help if you recognize it.
Trying to get inspired here. What are your favorite political candidate signs/logos that you have remembered or noticed? Can you link me or describe them? Democrat/Libertarian/Republican... color scheme doesn't matter here, just looking for a clean, solid "political" feel.
I know this sounds strange, but I'm working on an article about Jewish logo designers, and I haven't been able to determine if Terry Heckler (responsible for the original Starbucks logo) is Jewish. Any mefites out there know him personally (or been to a seder with him?), who could answer the question for me? Thanks!
I saw a sporty compact type of car today with a logo I didn't recognize. It looked like an angular "m" inside of an oval shape. I would describe it as a cross between a batman symbol and an infinity logo. The body style was a sleek, aggressive, sporty design - not cheap, but not too high end. If I guessed, I would have thought it was a like a Scion Tc or Mazda 3. At first I thought it might be a Tesla. I can't recall if it was a coupe or sedan. Any ideas?
I'm designing a logo that will incorporate five letter C's, either with the gaps facing inward (like a flower, like this) or out (like a star, roughly like this). The thing is, I know I've seen other examples of each of these shapes before and I want to avoid copying something already trademarked... but I honestly can't remember what they are and am having trouble searching. Can anyone point me to ones you're familiar with?
I'm fascinated by old union logos, especially the iconic IBEW (fist-and-lightning-bolts), Teamsters (two horses) and IWW (globe) insignia. I like the heraldic layouts, the modern-as-of-1920 visual style, and the heroic/futuristic/quasi-mystical iconography. You see similar features in Masonic iconography, logos for other fraternal orders (Lions, Eagles, the FOP) and in some older corporate logos (MGM and Paramount, the old American Airlines logo, Does this cluster of design features have a name? Where did it come from? What are some other good examples? [more inside]

I run a freelance design business and I've been working with a small, 3-person finance company on their logo. I delivered the last contracted round of revisions yesterday and the client has more changes, but rather than paying for a few more hours, they are requesting to make changes on their end, even though they are not designers or even in a creative field. How to manage this stickiness? [more inside]

Can anybody identify the car marker's logo in the bottom right hand of this picture, between Ariel and Isuzu? Supposedly a European car maker. Sadly no bigger version available.
What free promotional items have you received that you still have around and use many months later? Good examples: I have on my desk a ballpoint pen from my orthodontist about ten years after I last saw her - a small notepad with a calendar on the back of it from 2011 that I was sent with a charity solicitation - an insulated coffee mug from my local shop that I use often. Bad: squeeze balls, anything flimsy or disposable. [more inside]
