Iconic Brits!

This boxed Grenadier/Queen's Guard looks more like some lego of a Danish guard. I think it's a difficult task to stylize an icon without the risk of ruining some visual encoding. It would have been impossible to mix the mexican sombrero with the helmet of a normal bobby for example! I wonder how it would have been if they had chosen among other British icons like : Alice in wonderland, monty phython, the english weather, fish and chips, the mini skirt, the pub, a pint of real ale, Dr. who, Punch & Judy, little Britain ... or something "designish" like a double-decker or a Garden Gnome.

Anyway, Dicojal is inviting again to the UK-GDL-MX Design Forum. The last forum 2006 in Guadalajara was so successful, that this time it will go to Mexico city as well. April 7/8 in Guadalajara (ITESO) and April 9/10 in Mexico City (IBERO) You can hear from 8 design firms on issues about branding and packaging.
