Creating an Adaptable Logo
February 28, 2015
AllBusiness experts has issued the following press release: In today’s digital age, it’s easy to create a logo with all the bells and whistles. You may be envisioning a multi-color logo with depth and visual interest. Before you pull out all of the stops designing a complex image, consider how well that design translates into different media. In logo design, adaptability is key. Does your logo look good in black and white, or is its impact completely dependent on color? For most businesses, printed materials are a big part of their marketing campaigns. Although you may invest in a few high-dollar projects like a multi-color brochure or a media kit, most of your printed materials are likely to be more budget-friendly. Black and white printing is substantially cheaper than color printing. Beyond cost, you need a versatile logo that works for different purposes. For a glossy brochure, color is great. Letterhead and business cards are better suited to a black logo that creates a classic, sophisticated impression. There are additional considerations for online display. Imagine your brand new logo splashed across your website. Now imagine it on a big desktop monitor and then on the small screen of a mobile phone. Does it have the same impact? When creating a logo, you want it to be bold and distinguishable regardless of the size or the color.

February 25, 2015
A recreation of the development of the flight helmet that features a digital display, which transformed Elbit Systems along with the world of modern flight. Exclusive (Photo: Ofer Zidon) When Yaron Krantz retired from regular services as an IAF fighter pilot in 1990, he never thought he will play a part in a revolution, in the context of which most of the world's fighter pilots would convert to flying with their flight data displayed on a visor that constitutes an integral part of their helmet. The tremendous success of the flight helmet transformed Elbit Systems and not just the world of flight. It turned Elbit from a medium technological enterprise by Israeli standards into a major corporation in the global defense industry. Along the way, Elbit Systems acquired quite a few other companies and incorporated them in its operations. Krantz, along with former Elbit CEO Yossi Ackerman, recreated the story of the Elbit flight helmet for the first time in this interview. Krantz, an engineer and computer specialist with an additional degree in business administration speaks about the future helmet, to be used by the pilots of the F-35 future fighter and how it differs from the existing models.
