Everyone loves New York’s logo design

i love new york logos

Charles Caleb Colton once said “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”, if this is true then the I Love New York logo design is a clear favourite. Designed in 1975 by Milton Glaser, the logo has since been adopted for everything from shirts to foreign cities.

This logo was previously created for an environmental campaign for Brisbane City. There was however a lot of huffing and puffing from New Yorks legal representatives over the use of the logo, I’m not sure if it was ever used.

What do you think?

The original I love NY logo is great, obviously a popular design. I can’t say that I’d ever use the design for anything myself, but it’s interesting to see the adaptations.

  1. Ted,

    Glad to be of assistance. p.s. I love that picture of Knaresborough on your website, looks like a beautiful place.

  2. Interesting article Andrew. I saw an interesting variant on the traditional I (heart) NY logo today: NY (heart) me. I thought it stood out among the hundreds of similar logos out there.

  3. I love the “I love BNE” sticker, in fact I have one on my letterbox ;) I really think the heart icon looks great in green, as opposed to the usual red.
