The Best and Worst Identities of 2017, Part 4: The Best Noted

Somewhat similar to The Worst Reviewed, The Best Noted leaves a lot to be desired for. Perhaps it’s a reflection of my own editorial choices where the cool stuff gets Reviewed and the not-so-cool stuff gets Noted. There are only nine selections in this list and none of them are super exciting but still some pretty strong, valiant work.

A very slick update to the logo and an improvement for the brand recognition of the ice cream in the redesigned pints, all made better by the promise of what waits inside.

No.
