#49. Dead Prez
This politically charged duo’s logo merges visuals from wholly disparate sources for maximum revolutionary effect. The classic typewriter font in which the group’s name appears suggests old school institutional oppression, the sort of typeface you imagine COINTELPRO reports being filed in. The shih hexagram symbol of the I-Ching sandwiched in between represents “army” and the need for perseverance. Yup, way bigger than hip-hop.
