Branding Mash-ups


Mash-ups have been around for a while but they are usually the marriage of different technologies or ideas to create a new combination that takes advantage of all of them. Thus the name. Brazilian graphic designer Mario Amaya has put together a series of logo mash-ups that are funny and scarily convincing. The list includes:

Windows Vista + Volkswagen
Nintendo Wii/DS + Microsoft Windows XP
Unix + Unilever
Underground (London Transport) + Unibanco
HSBC + Sao Paulo Fudebol Clube
Sony + I (heart) NY
Samsung + Sam’s Club (Wal-Mart)
Dell + Shell
Nikon + Nike
Macromedia + Motorola
Microsoft + Mac OS
Macintosh + McDonald’s
Linux + Lux
Intel + Itau
Harry Potter + Hewlett-Packard
Carrefour + Canon
Apple + Adobe
