Since this website is Chip Kidd’s Official Blog we knew we totally have to mention that Universal Pictures is going to be re-releasing the Classic JURASSIC PARK Movie ( Directed by Steven Spielberg ) soon and it will be in 3D!! The Release Date is set for April 5th, 2013. Yes, here’s a chance to view this film on the big screen again but this time the Dinosaurs will be jumping out at you, literally! Up above is the One-Sheet Movie Poster ( that features the JP Logo designed by Chip Kidd ). Then, please be sure to view the video of the new movie trailer we placed here, down below.
Also, as a special treat, here is Chip Kidd’s original artwork for the Michael Crichton Book Jacket Cover, which later became the logo for the movie. Wow, we can’t wait to see this film again!!

Fans of the Designer Chip Kidd know he is famous for creating, among other things, the Jurassic Park Book Cover that eventually became the logo for the movie. Yes, we all love the famous Dinosaur silhouette that has graced many film tie-in products. Well, here are a few parodies of that logo we thought we would share and it’s crazy how much variety there is!
Oh yeah, this last photo is not really a “parody” picture but it’s an actual real-life tattoo that somebody got…WOW!

Logos surround us in digital and physical space, but we rarely examine the thought and artistic thinking that goes into the design of these symbols. Utilizing a silent vocabulary of colors, shapes, and typography, Logo Designers give a visual identity to companies and organizations of all types. From Cave Painters to modern Designers, Artists throughout history have been reducing the complex down to simple ideas that communicate with the world.

They say that “Imitation is the Highest Form of Flattery”, so I thought this would be a fun idea for a post. Chip Kidd is pretty well known for creating the logo used for Steven Spielberg’s JURASSIC PARK Movie. Well, actually he had first designed it for the Book Cover to Michael Crichton’s novel that the film was based on and then Universal Pictures optioned it for the use as their Official Movie Logo, cool! It was a big part of the movie, not only for Advertising, Billboards, Movie Posters, etc… but it was also featured prominently IN the movie because it was the “Logo for the Dinosaur Theme Park” and they kind of made a point about the evils of mass-marketing ( Lunch Boxes, T-Shirts, Mugs, etc. ). Anyway, the rest is history and this classic logo has become sort of iconic. So much so, that there have been a million parodies! Here are just a few… for laughs, ha ha! Enjoy.
