Can chrome be cuddly? There’s just something huggable about this Opel Kadett typeface that appeals to our kinder, gentler side. Might also be the Cadet with a ‘K’ and a double ‘t’ that makes us think of bubblegum and happy times.
Speaking of happy times, if you happened to forget that psychedelia happened, well, it did. This is proof.
Normally when we think of the Impala we think of the animal emblem; however, the script of the name isn’t too shabby either. The stylized capital ‘I’ is our favourite part of this classic logo.
Okay, we really couldn’t choose, so we cheated by throwing in another Corvette, this time it’s the distinctive “Stingray” script written, we’re pretty sure, with molten metal and a pastry piping bag directly onto the vehicle. This version happens to be from the year one of our designers was born. Sentimentality wins again.
