A 55 million dollar logo
(C)2008 Posten Norge AS
Other design companies in Norway feel sad, and think that our postal service deserve a logo with more weight and tradition than this simple logo.
Our postal service do this to be more seen when they now will try to compete on the abroad market. I buy that, but 60 million dollar for this logo and 2 years development? I can’t put that aside. I sincererly mean that one can get a better logo design on the net for 40-70 dollar, and delevered a few days after the order. Why on earth did it take two years?
And by the way, I can’t resist to ask ; were these guys inspired by Star Wars and the Death Star?
Or Saturn’s moon Mimas?
The reason I am extra irritated by the usage of money in Posten, is that it is not long ago our government approved a lay down of 120 of our 300 post offices. This to cut costs.
650 employees lost their job. Did they do this just to save money for this logo?
