Have you ever thought about how famous artists like Leonardo Da Vinci or Salvador Dali would create in the modern world? What if these famous painters had their own modern logo designs?
After working as a branding design for a long time, Brazilian artist Milton Omena challenged himself to expand his design boundaries and get out of his comfort zone and fulfill his idea of creating visual identities for famous painters. He carefully thought of painting styles, painters’ personalities, habits, and lifestyles and how each of them would have a unique logo, brand, or product.
“For example, I have never made freehand logos or proportion calculus. I have never used pastels or more than 3 colors. Using the inspiration from painters who already had their strong styles established was a way of exercising my versatility,” the digital artist told Bored Panda.
