The Airbnb Hole

It is not the fault of Airbnb that its new logo looks like an anatomical negative space, a hole, its chief technology officer, Nathan Blecharczyk, would like to everyone to know: We wouldn’t want to design a logo that caters to the lowest common denominator. This was a yearlong undertaking for dozens of people, it’s something meaningful, and no one pauses to really understand that.

It deals with a brand that's a real up-and-comer-it's got a great identity with a visceral impact.

World Trade Center Logos

The City Room blog had a competition for logos of the forthcoming World Trade Center building! We like this one. We think.
