The Power of AI: Realistic Logo Hijacking of Famous Brands
If you’ve been following us for a while on StuffMakesMeHappy, you know well that we have a huge weakness for creative revisits of famous logos. Now we are going to share a wonderful post about the realistic logo hijacking of famous brands.
Recently, we discovered a rather unusual project by an Internet user known as “fofrAI” on Twitter who had fun generating realistic interpretations of logos using artificial intelligence.
It’s needless to reiterate the fact that digital software, such as Midjourney, has gained significant popularity in recent months, piquing the interest of numerous individuals who are keen to form their own opinions and test its capabilities.
The Internet user serves as an apt illustration of this trend, as they were enticed to experiment with the Stable Diffusion tool, which generates a wide variety of images based on textual requests, and its ControlNet extension, which allows for modification and modulation of the obtained results as per one’s preferences.
Thus, through a somewhat perplexing process, he managed to capture images of logos that were unquestionably realistic. This is evidenced by the likes of Colonel Sanders, the renowned figure of the fast-food chain KFC, the green-haired siren of Starbucks, and even the iconic bell of Taco Bell.
However, there were specific interpretations that left us puzzled, such as the Michelin Man, known as Bibendum, who was reimagined as an American football player donning an inflatable suit.
With each passing day, artificial intelligence makes progress in its evolution and even creates new extensions to enhance the generated images. While some may argue that the resemblance is only sometimes precise, it is undeniable that the quality of the results remains impressive.
The said images were shared by the Internet user on their Twitter account, and it garnered the attention of over 1.4 million individuals.
