When in design school, I remember one teacher explaining us that trying to imitate the style of famous designers or artists as an exercise was one of the best ways to progress. In fact, when doint this, you have to try to put yourself in the person’s shoes and learn how to thing like that artist.
Italian designer Francesco Vittorioso did that exercise as a personal project, but he added a little twist to it. He took on famous brands using the style of iconic artists. The results are cool, in my opinion the best is the Modigliani Starbucks logo.
