“This logo was designed for myself as a side project for designing a messenger bag. The latin words Nota Bene stands for Note It Well, and I modified this phrase to Rota Bene ie. Rotate ( -> the pedal) it well!

It is a common phrase used by Hungarian cyclists to encourage each other so It popped out of my mind to modify this old latin phrase to fit in my cyclist life. That is the story of the words I used for my logo. Also it appeared on my messenger bag, hand sewn.”

Why should this logo be considered for Logo Of The Day?

“Because of the creative use of typography and the tricky playing with words and cross-meanings.”

Designer: András Bognár

Save for the “a” (which I feel should be rotated 90o CCW & flipped– for easier readability), it looks fine.

I’m also curious to see how it looks woven on the bag.

I had to look to the title to confirm the ‘e’ was an ‘e’. I’m thinking they need a little more defining. The overall design has a very Hawaiian feel and a great play on words.
