Great Design: Flamingo
Wherever I go, I’m noticing design...even in my bathroom, where I was recently appreciating the icon design on my Flamingo razor.
I recently looked, like REALLY looked, at the razor in my bathroom. Flamingo brand. What struck me was the simple line art of a flamingo on the razor handle. The art is so simple, but the curvature is precise in each part to communicate a flamingo (at least to me). Had the line anchor points or the angle of each curve been off even just a bit, I wonder how clear the shape of the flamingo would have been communicated. As it stands now, I think it’s perfect as a simple and clean representation of a flamingo.
As far as I can tell, the Flamingo brand mostly uses their typographic logo on their packaging and website. I love the font choice,... is it only me, or are you seeing flamingo legs in the the font too? I have seen the flamingo line art icon used on the razor handle, as the favicon on their website and in the footer of their website.
Since I don’t have access to their brand standards, I don’t know Flamingo's exact rules for usage. What I can say for sure is this is an awesome design that I really appreciate. Kudos to Flamingo for creating such a great icon for their brand!
Do you notice great design in your day-to-day life that you really appreciate? Packaging on your favorite snack? A poster at the gym?
Please note: I have no affiliation with the Flamingo brand. I just really appreciate their logo/icon design!
