Nike Logo - Design and History- $35 well spent

Nike Logo - Design and History- $35 well spent | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it
This page describes the design and history behind the Nike Corporate Logo Swoosh which was designed by Carolyn Davidson...

 

"The Nike "Swoosh" is a design created in 1971 by Carolyn Davidson, a graphic design student at Portland State University. She met Phil Knight while he was teaching accounting classes and she started doing some freelance work for his company, Blue Ribbon Sports (BRS).

BRS needed a new brand for a new line of athletic footwear it was preparing to introduce in 1972. Knight approached Davidson for design ideas, and she agreed to provide them, charging a rate of $2 per hour.

In June 1971, Davidson presented a number of design options to Knight and other BRS executives, and they ultimately selected the mark now known globally as the Swoosh. Davidson submitted a bill for $35 for her work. (In 1983, Knight gave Davidson a gold Swoosh ring and an envelope filled with Nike stock to express his gratitude.)

It's a Real Slice of History, Meathead-‘All in the Family’ in DVD Boxed Set

It's a Real Slice of History, Meathead-‘All in the Family’ in DVD Boxed Set | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it
A boxed set of all nine seasons of the TV comedy “All in the Family” makes it clearer than ever why the series was a singular phenomenon.

"Before “All in the Family” sitcoms were largely something to tune in for escape and reassurance. But as of Jan. 12, 1971, when “All in the Family” had its premiere on CBS as a midseason replacement, comedies suddenly had permission to be relevant in the way that variety shows like “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” and “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” had already tried. "

"It represents one of the last times that the best show on TV was also the most popular show on TV. Today it often seems as if the opposite is true. Some of the best shows of our age — “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” — have relatively small audiences. "

Can 'Mad' Women Crash Through the Glass Ceiling?

By Karen Herman

"Sunday’s brilliant “Mad Men” episode, “The Other Woman,” touched on the contemptuous treatment of women in the workplace. The year was early 1967, when women were far from breaking the “glass ceiling” of America’s corporate world. (Spoiler Alert!) By the end of the episode, Elisabeth Moss’ Peggy has left SCDP for greener pastures as a copy chief, and Christina Hendricks’ Joan has slept her way to a 5% share of the agency..."
