Defunct company rebrands *REQUESTS TAKEN*

56 posts in this topic

What if these companies still were around and had taken on a new identity?

Would have just been money wasted when there was little to waste.

 

Their inevitable sale or closure would've occurred as Wal Mart, Target, Costco, or Amazon would have still buried them.

What about Kmart? No wait, that still exists for some reason... 

 

Circuit City looks good. I remember there being one right next to a Toys R Us in St. Louis. As a kid I'd bounce back and forth between the two stores to find the cheaper video games. 

 

I've never heard of Ames but I looked it up  and the concept you've done looks like a plausible move for the brand.

Hoo boy, I'm sure you'll have a gold mine just running through all of the department stores Macy's gobbled up in the mid-2000s (and some before).

Marshall Field's, Robinson-May, Foley's, Hecht's, Goldsmith's, Kaufmann's....

Aw you kinda beat me to the joke I was going to do.

Goldsmith's and Robinson's/May are definitely my favorites. Well done, this might prove to be an interesting series.

 

Any chance you'd be willing to take a crack at Blockbuster?

I'm avoiding Blockbuster because it's really not dead. There's a good handful of locations still left in the USA.

They officially shut down all operations in 2013 though.

Some really good work up there, You do a great job keeping the character of the story and still making something that you wouldn't stop and stare at for all the wrong reasons.

 

I'd love to see:

 

- Cingular 

- Sym's

- Gimbels Brothers department stores

- J&R (a huge electronics store that shut down a few years ago)

- Sleepy's

- A&P grocery chain

- Borders bookstores

There are, but they're related in name only; those stores are just independently operated and merely licensing the name for use in their stores.

How are you making these? They remind me quite a bit of a logo creation website I saw recently.

Photoshop. If it looks like this website you saw, that is coincidence.

really unimpressed with blockbuster's just a block font and a square tells me nothing about the company and what it did.

They're different, that's for sure. For most, it looks like you just picked a font at random and just typed in the company name. All your apostrophes are nothing more than slightly tapered vertical tick marks instead of looking more like commas, which reiterates the "just typed in a word" look.

 

Bradlees isn't possessive.
