After nearly 15 years of minimal changes on the logo, this new version keeps the bulk of the previous drawing, but is solid, with a round bottom (pizza?) and a pale red colour. Amazing this mode of this type of red, which has already invaded the interface of Apple iOS7, as well as the Visual identity of AirBnB.

The Russia being the organizer of the next World Cup of football in 2018, the Organization revealed the official logo of the event. Obviously we find a pretty dominant red circled gold as well as each time in the logos of the World Cup, the country symbols inserted in the silhouette of the Cup (the object, the metal thing^^).
This is the new logo, as shown on FIFA website :
It remains a classic of the genre, well better done as the original logo of the bid in all cases:
But as soon as official logo was announced, there were already some usual mockery on the web. Especially since the hosting of such an event by Russia is debated.

Fotolia closes the season three of TEN with an artistic duo from the Far East. Their creation "The Future Shangri-La" will be available for free for 24 hours, the PSD, Monday, Nov. 10 on next www.tenbyfotolia.com.
Fotolia launched at the beginning of the year, season 3 of TEN, a creative project, educational and digital bringing together pairs of well known artists (photographer and graphic designer) around a common creation. This very successful season, ends in November with a duo of artists from the Far East .
As the first 4 pairs before them, the Korean photographer Mi-Kyung Kim joined the Japanese designer Kenichiro Tomiyasu, founder of the studio INEI, to create a work depicting their vision of the future. They imagined heaven on earth: "The Future Shangri-La", an oasis of peace where nature and energy form a perfect symbiosis.
"The Future Shangri-La" is inspired by the concept of utopia, an Asian fantasy similar to Western representations of the Garden of Eden. "This is our hope for the future, what we want, where nature takesit's rights and place back, and offers bright peaches, which evoke longevity, prosperity and vitality, like heavenly gifts in a world free of any hassles. This place is free from all the problems we face in our society, like the one imagined by the ancient Asian legend. Who knows, we might be able to find our Shangri-La, in the future? , 'The two artists.
The art of detail as an artistic signature
Mi-Kyung Kim and Kenichiro Tomiyasu have in common to use with subtlety the art of detail. This enchanted picture full of lush nature, twinkling lights and running water, thousand details and information highlight the mystical and futuristic nature of their work.
Although photography and conceptual art are based on completely different patterns of thinking, "we arrived, as artists, we understand without exchanging a word," says the designer. This is the unit of work that brings strength and depth to the work "The Future Shangri-La." "It shows not only the outer beauty of nature but also its hidden history," says the photographer.
To follow the artistic journey of two artists - from their meeting to their final work - a making-of video will be available on November 10 www.tenbyfotolia.com and on the official YouTube channel TEN: http: // www.youtube.com/tencollection
PSD file of "The Future Shangri-La" - with all layers, filters, settings and resources used, including the photograph of Mi-Kyung Kim Shopping and pictures - will be downloadable for free on November 10 www.tenbyfotolia.com.

Fotolia introduces its fourth pair of international artists, with work from renowned French digital artist artist Christophe Huet. On 10 September the pair’s work, “Energy of Life”, will be available to download in PSD format, free of charge, for 24 hours from www.tenbyfotolia.com.
This new team’s creation, “Energy of Life”, is a thought-provoking glimpse of the humans of tomorrow: worn down, stigmatised by society, with their very humanity under threat
Money, power and individualism are gradually eating away at our core values and society. Little by little, the race towards mass consumption is becoming a way of life where “we want to take and not just to be,” explains Christophe, “and that alienates us from ourselves.” How can humanity evolve in such an environment? The artists present their vision of the future of mankind as adulterated and subject to constant social pressure. “We wanted to create a metaphor about the way we exist now as a society: boxed up and pigeonholed, both physically and mentally,” says Mikel.
Boxes gradually emerge until they replace the heart, which has become artificial and manufactured. Yet hope lives on in the tree of life, which symbolises the lungs. “The tree is upside-down because that’s how babies are born,” says Christophe. “Head down, feet up, hearts above their heads.”
The tree shows that some kind of humanity still exists, acting as a ray of light that connects heart and spirit. Neither can exist without the other; they sustain one another in the same way that people sustain each another. Our head needs our heart and vice versa – people need people, and always will.
To follow the artists’ creative process, from their first meeting to their final work, a making-of video will be available on 10 September at www.tenbyfotolia.com and on TEN’s official YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/tencollection .
On 10 September the “Energy of Life” PSD file, including all the layers, filters, settings and resources the artists used, Mikel’s photographs and Fotolia’s images, can be downloaded for free from www.tenbyfotolia.com !

TEN returns this month to present the third pair of international artists. This month, it consists of two self-taught artists: Paul Ripke, German photographer and Nik Ainley, English digital illustrator.
Resident photographer of Hambourg Paul Ripke wanted to create a work "that represents the city with a futuristic view point." Most observers recognize, indeed, the great harbor of the city of Hamburg, "HafenCity". A place where cranes and turbines, industry and ecology come together ... The others may get carried away by the mystery of the creation ... We are in the twilight of an era, the end of a time in which the night will fall down. Everything seems strangely quiet. The movement is induced everywhere; swirl waves, surfer in the air, outstanding sails in the distance ... and yet everything seems strangely frozen. The nature seems to have regained his magical aura, which inhabited the mythological stories. The world seems like submerged by the waters; no land being visible on the horizon. Men and women stripped become one with the foam of the sea, as if the spirits of the water awaken. Wakeboarder overlooks the scene, "jumping over many human body", marking the supremacy of man over the elements. A sport that, according to Paul, is "the future" ...
In the end, Paul Ripke quotes this creation as a good example of teamwork, "diversity always creates the best results." For the photographer, collaborating with other artists sounds like a no-brainer. If he engaged in TEN, it is because he "loves working with people from different countries and love mixing styles to create something unique." Nik Ainley, digital illustrator, joined his opinion. Work with other artists "is very entertaining, especially if our respective styles are very different. We really enjoyed ourselves in this international production. "
To follow the artistic journey of the two artists - from their meeting to their final work - a making-of video will be available on July 10 www.tenbyfotolia.com and on the official YouTube channel TEN: http://www.youtube.com/tencollection
« Surf in the city », will be available for free for 24 hours, in PSD format, on July 10th on www.tenbyfotolia.com !!
