2. Austin, Texas The twangy Austin logo is a little too big belt buckles for our taste. Come on, this is the city that hosts SXSW!
3. Detroit, Michigan The electric Detroit logo is splattered in brightly-colored paint that drips like oil. A little messy and a little gritty, just how they like it.
4. Los Angeles, California Very modern and angular, L.A.’s logo doesn’t quite reflect the laidback vibe the area is known for, but it does remind us of something we’d spot in the Getty.
5. Portland, Oregon
Which is more perfectly Portland: creatures that look like they were pulled from the cover of a Shins album or a one-eyed Bigfoot riding a bike?
