No clue on the others, but the last one is definitely Atari.

benw 09 Aug 05

are they all the right way up? if not then its just evil

JF 09 Aug 05

Yes, they are all in their normal orientation.

Jeremy Flint 09 Aug 05

Are they all from the same type of “industry”? Do they all have a connection of some kind?

JF 09 Aug 05

No connection, some may be in the same industries.

Steven Ametjan 09 Aug 05

I recognize the last two… but the rest have me stumped right now

Dave 09 Aug 05

First one is Canon, but I have no idea on the unidentified 3. Good luck, solvers.

Dave Simon 09 Aug 05

Ouch, couldn’t have left them in the company colors and made it easier? Or would that have been too easy?

benw 09 Aug 05

got 4/5, middle one is killing me

aliotsy 09 Aug 05

Got 4/5, second one is killing me.

Dave Simon 09 Aug 05

I know that when I find out what they are I’m going to do the Homer Simpson “DOH!”

Patrick Gage 09 Aug 05

with your powers combined, you are captain planet.

I know the middle one. I’ll sell you the answer for $287.

Christopher 09 Aug 05

Kept thinking the middle one was the 3d Viacom logo that pops out before movie credits during every single cheap slasher flick made in the 80s… but clearly ‘tis not.

Wesley Walser 09 Aug 05

Oh, tough game. Even after knowing the answer it takes me a bit of looking at the real logo, and those crops to actually figure out where the crop came from.

Difficult

What?! No Basecamp, TadaList, Backpack logo in there?!

Anonymous Coward 09 Aug 05

Temperpedic logo

Anonymous Coward 09 Aug 05

Yeah, Temperpedic but that is an EVIL crop of it. You can’t see any of the geometry that makes it look like +

john 09 Aug 05

middle is not Tempur-pedic… i repeat…

Anonymous 09 Aug 05

See, this is the problem with not following w3c standards. Alt attributes would be *very* helpful here.

Scott Meinzer 09 Aug 05

So does all the usable UI development make you want to just confuse people sometimes? Good thing basecamp isn’t this cryptic.

benw 09 Aug 05

yeh, the obsession with clarity gives them the overwhelming desire to just baffle people on purpose in their spare time. i think soon we’ll start to see a surge of deliberate crypticness, like form buttons that say things like “if a tree falls in the forrest, does it make a sound?”

Scott Meinzer 09 Aug 05

Just Figured out the middle one. Two more to go….

Scott Meinzer 09 Aug 05

After looking thru 13,000 logos I have them all figured out; except for the 2nd one; argh.

Brad Smith 09 Aug 05

I’ve got all but the 2nd and 3rd. Argh as well.

Dave Gilley 09 Aug 05

I think I have them:

1. Canon
2. Lexus
3. Chevrolet
4. Harley Davidson
5. Atari

Scott Meinzer 09 Aug 05

I Think Its:

1. Canon
2. Lexus
3. Swissair
4. Harley Davidson
5. Atari

Dave Gilley 09 Aug 05

Boo. You’re totally right on SwissAir. Good job finding it, and you’re welcome for the Lexus!

JF 09 Aug 05

Scott Meinzer wins! Well done! We’ll be in touch shortly!

1. Canon
2. Lexus
3. Swissair
4. Harley Davidson
5. Atari

Scott Meinzer 09 Aug 05

Thanks a ton on that :) I was looking and looking and then i refreshed and was like “Noooooo!” and then I said wait…. Chevy isn’t right…. Now I hope the rest are right….

Dave Gilley 09 Aug 05

To my logo cred defense, I was going off this older Chevy logo:

So at least I wasn’t totally off-base… I was suspect of the thin stem of the T, but I figured someone had to guess sooner or later!

aliotsy 09 Aug 05

LEXUS! Aaargh! Congrats, Scott.

Dave Simon 09 Aug 05

How can the one I had most difficulty be the one I see every damn day? I live near a Harley dealership and right along the path to Sturgis for many west coast bikers (I-90 in Montana.)

DOH! (I promised I’d say that!)

JF 09 Aug 05

I’ll be posting the full logos with the cropped sections highlighted tomorrow (hopefully).

And perhaps we’ll also put up round 2.
