Winging my way to SXSW, I was thumbing through the March issue of American Way, the American Airlines in-flight magazine. Amidst the numerous ads for Argentinian barbecue restaurants (what’s up with that anyway?) I came across this splash graphic introducing an article on how corporate sponsorships are ruining professional sports… or something like that. I didn’t read the article, I was too fixated on the title image. I spent the last 20 minutes before landing trying to name all the logos.
Most of them are instantly recognized no-brainers, but a few had me stumped. So I took the magazine with me, thinking it would be good fodder for a future blog post. In the weeks since, I’ve placed all but three. I’ve uploaded it to Flickr and added my answers as notes. Any help with the remaining three would be appreciated, as it’s been driving me nuts for some time now. (I should also point out that I finally identified the apostrophe between 18 and 19 after I had already uploaded it.) Anyone who can identify logos 3, 13 and 15 will get a gmail invite (as if those were still worth anything). Yahoo 360 invites perhaps?
Update: The quiz is complete, with all logos successfully identified (though one or two may be open to debate). The answers can be found on Flickr.
