Nomen est omen / The name is a sign

Sigurno ste čuli za latinski izraz "Nomen est omenšto znači "ime je znak". Ne tako davno ljudi su vjerovali da ime može nositi snažnu simboličku i magičnu konotaciju koja će odrediti onoga koji ga nosi. Onda što je u imenu? Logo,  ako je suditi prema nizozemskom umjetniku Mike Frederiqou. Bacite jedan pogled na njegove crteže i odmah ćete prepoznati osnivača branda čiji logotip slika nosi. Što mi mislimo o ovom lukavom načinu pretvaranja poznatih dizajnera u brandove njihovih logotipa? Genijalno! / Surely you've heard of Latin phrase "Nomen est omen" meaninig "the name is a sign" . Not that long ago people believed that the name can carry strong symbolic and magical connotation that will determine the life of the wearer. So, what is in a name? A logo, according to Dutch artist Mike Frederiqo. Take one look at his drawings and you'll  be able to find the founder of a brand whose logo image has accosted. What we think about his clever way of transforming famous designers and sketching them into their logos? Genius!
