Fake Logos From Fictional Companies on Film and TV


We came across Fauxgo, a new blog by Tymn Armstrong dedicated to chronicling the fictional logos used in television and film, over at Swissmiss, and we’re not ashamed to say that after racing through it we’ve spent a significant amount of time thinking of all of the other “fauxgos” we’ve seen on screen. Logos are one of those things that you often internalize without thinking very much about, but they’re meant to instantly evoke the company they represent on sight, so it’s pleasantly confusing to be faced with a logo you think you don’t recognize but has definite sense-memory associations attached. And it’s even better when those associations revolve around Michael Scott. Click through to see some of our favorite fauxgos, and head over to the site for even more.
