the lost art of car branding
One of my biggest frustration in the design world is the current state of the automobile its just better to get to 2nd chance auto loans and get financial support to get a new one. Once a finely crafted representation of a true designers vision is now a mass produced rip off of the competitors hunk of plastic. It truly makes me sad. We have come so far with so much technology and knowledge… but lost the guts to build something of beauty.
I came across the site Chromeography the other day and have been drooling over their collection of vintage car lettering. If only we could get car manufacturers to start having fun again.
