Schönes Interview mit Ellen Lampl, der Designerin der Poster und Logos in Idiocracy:

How do you describe the futuristic logos in the cult movie Idiocracy? Set in a hilariously dystopian future, the movie foregrounds design in a way few other movies have, with twisted versions of almost every corporate logo. Graphic designer Ellen Lampl, who made the logos in the film, says it best: „A visual vernacular fusion of Nascar, candy packaging, Mexico handpainted signs and Japanese pop culture…“

This is the story of the logos in Idiocracy: how they happened, the amazing ideas that ended up on the cutting room floor, and just how the Carl’s Jr. Star got so angry.
