Have a question about a nameplate or badge?
The Nameplate FAQ page covers common questions in the following areas.
Officially this isn't any one person's favorite nameplate. None of my co-workers have chosen to write about it (yet). However, it catches the attention of most visitors and anyone looking at one of our nameplate display boards. So, I thought it should be included in our listing of favorite nameplates. Of course the Harley-Davidson logo catches your attention. There is more to it though. The translation of this American icon's logo on to aluminum is a classic nameplate design. It stands the test of time. It still turns heads.
Why is this? I'm sure one reason is the size. It is larger than most nameplates but definitely not our largest. The bold colors are another attention getter. The simple design features a deep multi-level emboss adding to the visual weight of the badge. The orange graphics are printed to register to the emboss. The outside border is embossed bright aluminum while the inside border and Harley-Davidson are diamond cut.
What other nameplates come to mind when thinking of classic nameplate design? What makes them a classic? If not a classic, how about a favorite nameplate? Why is it your favorite? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
