The badges on the back of the car, not the front logos.       This is the best picture I’ve found. A lot of models on 1 place. Nice…

You can click to zoom in the print-screen from the site. The shot is taken today – 26.04.2012. Who knows – may be the android guidelines will evolve someday, but for now they are pretty short.

Prometheus movie logotype appearance

It’s always hard to present a logotype in an original way when it comes to motion graphics. We’ve seen all kind of fades, particle animation, drawing, spinning, you name it. But simplicity will dominate forever. Just a simple step by step, stem by stem appearance with some cool rhythm can make the regular “allien movie” looks interesting.
