No Frills Branding

Designer Kunel Gaur, head of a creative agency called Animal, has redesigned the packaging for several familiar brands using minimal black & white graphics and unadorned typography.

On Wednesday, Scott Piercy played a practice round at TPC Sawgrass in an outfit that is unusual for any player on the PGA Tour much less one who has won four times and earned more than $20 million in career money: He was logo-less. A day later, in the opening round of the Players Championship, he wore another nondescript getup that he bought from a store devoid of the usual variety of company names that typically adorn hats, shirts and sleeves to Nascar-like levels. This is the new reality for t...

Does coronavirus need a brand?

Stay with me here. As we enter the full throes of coronavirus spread in the US, it’s becoming incredibly evident that we cannot depend on the Federal apparatus to clearly communicate any of the necessary information citizens need.
