We are thrilled to share the collection of googie styled interior pieces. That’s a real retro fever with all that unrestrained and exuberant fancy of googie. Along with its vivid colors, incredible geometric oddity of abstract cutouts and a strong emphasis on lighting and flowing lines, googie is still causing a huge furor. The furniture inspired by googie style has been in continuous production for over fifty years and so far it makes the most of its charm retaining a sharp and super slick modern design. Now you are welcome to enter the world of googie with its wild, colorful, and eye-catching fantasies applied to furniture art!

Trendy Logos of World Giant Football Clubs

On the topic of logo trends, we should realize that football logos are individual; they differentially define the team’s character setting various tones for active visual perception. Still, there are some conspicuous football logo trends we can single out and shortly summarize. Most of today’s football logos are very strong and bold; they have a better contrast, thicker strokes to look more fierce and aggressive. Some logos are over complicated being traced with armorial bearings and heraldic symbols. The others are simple in shapes, may incorporate team’s initials or just combine the theme with some lettering. Many logos introduce just two or three colors, a few have color gradients, and lots of stylized animals, birds, sports’ equipment within the image. The overall point is that there’s some classic that will live on forever, standing the test of time, going through decades of trends, and still being so strong. Below you can find the revealing variety that represents the more-or-less general design trends of football club logos.
