Here Are A Bunch Of Definitely Original Logos For Alberta 'War Room' - 2019-12-30
The design side of Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's energy "war room" is having a terrible, horrible, no good holiday season. Earlier this month, it was revealed that the Canadian Energy Centre's logo was lifted from a U.S. software company. After profuse apologies and the turfing of the ad agency, the government centre promised a shiny new original logo. Then last week, that logo turned out to look a lot like another American company. Graphic design certainly doesn't seem to be the Alberta government's forte. Enter staff at Goat, a Vancouver-based design agency. They created the Energy War Room Generator. Simply hit the button and out comes a totally original, definitely not taken from another company logo.
Goat Three possible logos created by Goat's "Alberta Energy War Room Logo Generator."
The humorous take repurposes familiar imagery and fonts into super unique logos for the Canadian Energy Centre, which was created by Kenney's government to produce content and marketing promoting the oilsands and Alberta's energy industry. "This Angle Mark represents the progress we are making as a province despite the best efforts of our Foes From Before to hinder us," reads the description of a familiar swoosh from the generator. "The right side of the icon goes up, like stocks do when times are good. The left side shows reverse progress that curves the wrong way — the way Alberta has gone previously."
