These are all car logos that should be well known even to the non car enthusiast. Some if the logos are ones that we see in day to life and others are ones we mostly see on top gear or on family holiday to Monaco several years ago.
Although all these car manufacturers design completely different cars, they all have similar characteristics when it comes to their logos.
The design is often circular or bares symmetrical characteristics that balance the design out nd make it useable over a wide range of media formats.
This is something that I will be trying to achieve when designing the logo for Lotus Livery brief.
