This is "The Guild of Food Writers" logo and what I like about this is how it plays on with the company's name. "food" is represented by the negative space shaped as a spoon and "writers" is represented by the fountain pen. Clever use of negative space.
"Lets paint the town Red" I think this is another advertisement for a paint company. It seems paint companies have the coolest designs. The red paint really stand out and making the bristles the town was really creative.
The owl has a lot of great texture. It is made with simple geometric shapes. The owl is still powerful in black and white. It's an interesting crop of the owl. I wish I could see more of the owl like his wings.
