What’s enjoyable about this particular logo is that it was conceptualized and designed by long-time automotive designer Dick Ruzzin. As the former Director of Design for both GM Europe and Chevrolet North America, Ruzzin knows a thing or two about cars and it was interesting to see how he went from initial sketch to final logo, a process documented – albeit briefly – on the Woodward Cruise site. (Catalyst design helped digitize the final options.) The detail I most enjoy is the cloud reflection in the body of the vehicle in the form of dust coming out from the wheels, a very nice touch. Enjoy. (Photos courtesy of The Woodward Dream Cruise.)
