Commonly seen logos are redesigned as medieval illustrations
Part of being a successful business in today’s era is having an iconic logo. What if the most famous brands we know existed hundreds of years ago? Artist Ilya Stallone uses his art to travel back in time and redesign some of the best-known logos in the style of medieval art.
The inspiration for this series of original illustrations came after visiting castles in Belarus. “I’ve been designing, illustrating and most importantly creating logos for a long time, and I realized I could combine the work I love with the atmosphere of the Middle Ages,” Stallone told My Modern Met.
From clothing brand Lacoste to dating app Tinder, he transforms a range of different businesses with outdated styling and humorous lineup choices. In Stallone’s reimagining of the Burger King logo, for example, he places two classic-looking kings between the burger buns. Similarly, software company Windows offers antiquated stained glass windows that look like they belong in a medieval church.
