found in translation

I stumbled across the "Brand New Classroom" today - its a new offshoot of one of my favorite blogs called "Brand New" which highlights brand and logo redesigns. Brand New Classroom looks at similar issues but highlights student projects rather than actual redesigns. The post these images came from is a project of several students, where each took a logo in its original Latin alphabet and redesigned it using the Hebrew alphabet but keeping the look and characteristics of the original. Some of the comments indicate that there may be some translation questions in a couple of these, but since I don't read Hebrew, I don't know. I do know that, especially for students, they have done a great job of translating the character and tone of the original logo into the new ones. Check out the full examples and details here:
