Imagine your favorite company whether it be food, clothing, or any other company. Now imagine their enemy or competitor in the business. Your goal for this assignment is to take your favorite company's trademark image or logo and reinterpret it in a way that reflects the design of its enemy. Look for the elements that make the competitor's logo what it is. What is the color scheme? Is there any methphors or hidden meanings? What is the form of the logo? How can you use its balance, porportion, or rhythm? The important thing is to still have the original company's message and essence within the new design, but masked by the competitor's look.
