Branding 10,000 Lakes

Branding 10,000 Lakes

I’m working on two websites at the moment so I’ve been doing lots of website browsing to get ideas and inspiration. In the process I came across such a cool project, so I thought I’d share it with you. Nicole Meyer is an art director who has recently started a project which aims to brand one Minnesota lake a day. Did you know there are more than 10 000 of them?!

Nicole says,

“Lake logos have a tendency to be, well, fairly ugly. This project was created to rethink what they could be. 
One Minnesota Lake. One Logo. Every day.
Should only take a little over 27 years to hit ’em all. Stay tuned and enjoy!”

I love the idea that she has taken on such a big project, I mean… a logo a day for 27 years is huge dedication! I also really enjoyed seeing her interpretation of the lake names and the logos she created. Really brilliant, take a look and see them all of them so far on Branding 10,000 Lakes.
