Top & Tails

I’ve slept on this one. This branding style is really gaining momentum at the moment; a simple black & white face without features, throwing back to 1920’s America & U.K town. The brands below range from live music venues to hairdressers, but the look and feel is quite similar. They say gentleman, not larrikin. It says wealth & a certain degree of power. Pictures after the jump.

More abstracted and almost surreal interpretation of the top hat.

Nice holding shape, contemporary type & umbrella crossbone.

Bowler hat and moustache creates a different kind of look.

They’ve really nailed that hunting hat, and I like the symbolistic monocle. Pretty sure that’s some kerned out Futura in the logo. Also uses colour really well.
