Wanda Sykes: Spokesapple for Applebee's

Applebee’s has a new logo, and a new Spokesapple.  Brand New has a reveiw of the new logo, and most of the reviewers are as mixed as the logo elements themselves. Personally, I think the logo brings Applebee’s to the current design trends, but the offset of the apple illustration and the monotone between the company name and the slogan is a little bland. The font choice for the tagline is a bit much, perhaps too much serif going on here.

Identity aside, I like the way Applebee’s has introduced a viral marketing video as part of the rebranding. Setting up Apple auditions for a new Spokesapple. Some of the clips are pretty funny, including the pineapple, orange and pear who auditioned, or Alan the Karate Chopping Apple. Check out the auditions here.

When all auditions were through, Wanda Sykes is the new voice over for the new Spokesapple. I love Wanda, and I think she’ll really bring out the comedy in having a Spokesapple. She is fun, funky, and still very fresh.

Favorite Presidential Logo

Be design democratic! Check out LogoVoting.com to vote for your favorite 2008 Presidential Candidate logo.

It’s interesting the number of different symbols and typography that are used to express a personal touch to the same type of communication. Also check out the variety and combinations of red, white, blue, stars, and American flags.

I would tell you who I voted for, but that’s against the rules. 😉
