You sometimes forget that superheroes even have logos. You inherently think of logos as something for brands, for companies that have products or services to sell, for organizations that want to be recognized in the smallest instance of design. But superheroes want to send a message as well. For example, while the Bat Symbol is the easiest way to get Batman’s attention when it’s projected against the sky, it comes to represent something to fear if you’re a criminal in Gotham. Yet, like all good logos, even the emblems on superhero chests can be broken down to simplistic line art.
Canadian design studio Baboon has been doing just that, creating gif after gif of your favorite superheroes’ logos (and those of a few villains). With an appearance akin to neon signs, the logos stylish stand for truth, justice, hope, freedom, strength, and an unflappable determination to protect innocents from evil. Also, they apparently stand for totally bitchin’ design. Seriously, these things are sweet.
