Paris-based illustrator, Sylvan Boyer, has a huge collection of news stories on his website, narrated in minimalistic graphical language using famous logos. These stories range from local to international and from business to sports. Many of them are quite controversial and some are funny. Where they aren’t all a hit, it’s certainly a commendable effort to try to delineate difficult or lengthier concepts effectively using simple and minimal design with logos.
For this post, we have focused mainly on items using famous brand logos, but you can find many more at the Icons Times website.

Hello readers, logo generator seekers and Design Mantic employees….I’m pleased to share my painless experience with you on how fast and simple It really was making my first Logo design for my very own first company ‘Forever Lush Events’ mind you I don;t know if this experience is going to be painless for you….::)) Okay so I came across this free logo creation service called Designmantic.com (love the name by the way) and within the first 2 minutes of entering the site and reviewing the menu I was smiling and well interested.
