Weekend Inspiration: Branding 10.000 Lakes

Posted by Jon M

Branding 10,000 Lakes is a project or massive undertaking by Art Director and Graphic Designer Nicole Meyer.

Lake logos have a tendency to be, well, fairly ugly. This project was created to rethink what they could be.

One Minnesota Lake. One Logo. Every day.

Should only take a little over 27 years to hit ’em all. Stay tuned and enjoy!

– Nicole Meyer

Who wants to get something similar going for California State Parks, which continue to be in danger of being affected by massive budget costs, some might even be closing soon? Just throwing it out there…

I remember seeing this a few months ago… awesome project, and some really great design work too.

That’s a fantastic idea for the California State Parks.

Wow, that’s certainly a lot of branding if they’re doing 10,000 logos. Set for life is a good way to put this. By the time they finish the first round, it’ll be time to redesign.

What is fairly odd is that if you look at the rest of her work, it’s not nearly as strong as any of these. I was excited to see the rest of her stuff when I first saw this a few months ago, but was rather disappointed.

What an undertaking. I wonder if this impacts the community in positive ways?

I think the state park suggestion is awesome. I’d love to do something like that.
