Design magazine HOW has created a series of GIFs called Logomorphs, showcasing how some of our favourite brands' logos have transformed in the past year alone.

Other notable examples include Instagram’s logo change, which has gone from a complex retro camera to an elegant square with bold white motifs.

HOW's GIFs, which you can see here, follow these intriguing transitions in one smooth movement; what do you think of them?


A budding architect from Ukraine has won Blank Space’s Fairy Tales competition.

Mykhailo Ponomarenko won first prize for his entry ‘Last Day’, which comprises a series of head-tilting paintings and an accompanying story inspired by science fiction.

Ponomarenko takes everyday tranquil environments and twists them, putting 'something weird, unreal and out of human scale into them', creating an alternative history that saw the USSR building cities in the sky.

Second place went to Terrence Hector with ‘City Walkers’, while third place was awarded to ‘Up Above’ by Ariane Merle D’Aubigné and Jean Maleyrat.

Designed to 'explore current events and the creative process through short stories and artwork', this fourth edition of the competition attracted entries from over sixty countries.
