I need to communicate a instruction about a technique converting a company name into a logo. I don’t want to show real world examples. Because it needs to be obvious that the person following the instruction can do the same to his company name and logo.
I’m searching for a placeholder like ‘John Doe’, ‘www.example.tld’, ‘ Timbuktu’, ‘foo’, ‘bar’ but than for a company name. This placeholder name will also be displayed in the instruction as logo (symbol). There has to be a strong relation between the placeholder (string) and logo (symbol).
I’m looking for a fictional company name that will trigger strong visual associations.
As in my comment, I do not think I entirely understand you Q, but what you are after are names for fictional companies that have a strong visual impact.
Strong relation between the fictional name and logo? That is what logo design is for; the company name is not chosen as such.
The all-time classic fictional company is Acme Corporation.
Cinema and literature are full of fictional companies, here are some classics:
- Sirius Cybernetics (The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy)
- Wonka Industries (Charlie and the chocolate factory)
- Tyrell Corp. (Blade runner)
- Nakatomi Trading Corp. (Die hard)
