Illustrator Thomas Fuchs and designer Felix Sockwell's new self-published book, Deconstructing Dumbo, presents 100 witty reinterpretations of the US Republican party's elephant logo. Click through for 18 more – or order the book at Fuchs' page, here. Surely a low ebb when people can have this much fun with your logo. Brilliant stuff. Link via Andrew Sullivan's blog.


Some pretty comical renditions. I didn't realize that that elephant could be changed in so many different ways. Nice post. Thanks.

Brilliantly thought-out, the Enron one especially! Now I wonder what 'Deconstructing Donkey' would look like...

Love it. There are too many witty logos to pick out but they're all beautifully crafted.

CR: After clicking on an image in the article you go through to a blank page but with the same image. Is there any chance the click-through could open larger images? Sometimes the space just doesn't do the images justice.

I love these playful designs. It does help to start with an outstanding design in the first place though!. It would be interesting to see someone turning their hand to the Democrat's Donkey Logo in a couple of years time, when there's some working reference .

Simply genius. They all tell different stories and convey different emotions.
