The quote: “When it rain, it pours but soon the sun will shine again” was quoted an anonymous person. I chose this quote because it explains there is a balance to life and sends a positive message. I chose images that involved the sun whether it was rising, or shining, or even drawn to put emphasis on the more positive look on the quote.

Evolution of Burger King’s Logo:

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-12-47-28-pmIn today’s society, Burger King is one of the most famous food chains in the world. The company began in 1953 as Insta-Burger King as a restaurant chain in Florida. After financial issues with Insta-Burger King, David Edgerton and James McLamore purchased the company and rebranded it Burger King in 1954. The logo was developed in 1967 to resemble a hamburger, with bun halves surrounding the name. It was in use chain-wide by 1969. The design was updated in 1994 to add a blue swirl to the now slightly-tilted burger. The first logo design was made in 1955 which was more complex and detailed to fully fit the “Burger King” title. The logo evolved drastically since than and became a more simplified logo which has been around since 1998. The first logo made in 1955 has a vintage look and reflects on the company’s name. It illustrates the king, a burger and the sign of Burger King representing the “Whopper” as the burger they are known for. This design remained until about 1969 when they created a logo that represented a burger instead. The logo was two halve buns and in between the buns was “Burger King” in a red bubbly font to represent the meat. Even though the King was removed from the logo, his key role was still in the commercials and ads. In 1994, not much changed but they slimmed the font down a little and enhanced the colors. It wasn’t until 1998 that they made the buns with more depth and added shine. Also tilting it slightly to the left and adding the blue swirl around it to give it a global feel. The three colors utilized in the Burger King logo are red, yellow and blue. These three basic colors form a eye catching symbol adequate enough to pull people towards it. The font used was to assure readability.
