New Book Analyzes The Fascinating Logos of Terrorist Groups
Terrorist groups, like all other organizations, need brand identities—this means that their logos are important tools of visual communication that help them spread their ideas and reach out to their supporters.
Co-authored by creative director Francesco Trivini Bellini and former United Nations counter-terrorism analyst Artur Beifuss, Branding Terror is “unique handbook of the logos of contemporary terrorist organizations worldwide, from al-Qaeda to the Real IRA”.
Dissecting the logos of 60 terrorist organizations, this new book provides fascinating insight into the graphic design of these insurgent movements—analyzing the colors and elements of their logos tells one a lot about these groups’ aims and methods.
This will be an inspiring read for both graphic design enthusiasts and anyone interested in international politics and counter-intelligence—buy it here.
