About

Industry Logos as VTuber Logos refers to a series of parodies in which people redesign logos for popular corporations to look like those of Virtual YouTubers. The design trend grew popular on Twitter / X in April of 2024.

Origin

On April 16th, 2024, Twitter / X user @AisuAsai uploaded a parody of the Pizza Hut logo by using design concepts found in VTuber logos.[1] The post received 3,700 reposts and 32,600 likes in four days (shown below).

Spread

Later that day, @AisuAsai started creating other logo parodies based on VTuber themes. For example on April 17th and 18th, 2024, the same Twitter / X[2][3] user uploaded a logo parody of Waffle House that also referenced the Chair Catch video, as well as a Nintendo logo parody. The posts received more than 1,900 reposts and 15,500 likes in three days, and 379 reposts and more than 5,100 likes in two days, respectively (shown below, left, and right).

The edit also inspired other Twitter / X users to create logo parodies. For example, on April 18th, 2024, Twitter / X[4] user @jihunmin__ uploaded a Google Maps logo parody based on a VTuber theme. The post received 868 reposts and more than 7,200 likes in two days (shown below, left). On the same day, Twitter / X[5] user @Aikoyori uploaded a Visual Studio Code logo parody that received more than 3,800 reposts and 23,200 likes in two days (shown below, right).

And for those prices you could just commission your own font.

I saw once some brand book that had varying levels of detail depending on where you were, so you got the basic gist so that even if you were plastering a "we are a Fortune 500 company do not use Comic sans" warning on the water fountain, there were basic style guidelines to be followed.

As a result every employee had access to the CORPO©®™ TypeFace, where only the C-O-R-P-O letters were styled in such way, and you were only allowed to spell "CORPO©®™" with that very specific custom tailored font. Anything else you wanted to write and that was allowed to be in that style, you were directed to use two free fonts from the same family typeface that were free and could be easily obtainable legally anywhere.

Contrast to another place I saw later which had a "brand book" and all their templates used generic-but-paid fonts requiring you to have Adobe©®™ Illustrator©®™ installed to load properly, and it never once dawned on the designers that nobody can edit their templates without spending $240 per computer on fonts alone. (8 fonts ranging from $29 to $59). Their logo they had so much pride used a standard Illustrator©®™ Font©®™.

Usually we would get around with Calibri but often we would use Arial or Times New Roman to see if they would get the hint (they didn't).
