Dabitch's day in Logotypes - a.k.a “Brand timeline portrait”

Dear Jane started it, oh yeah, it's all her fault that I sat here and tried to remember all the brands that I used today and made a timeline of it. Fora brief moment I tried to figure out if I could make a logo-tastic site where one could generate one of these timelines but I soon snapped out of it and just went ahead and photoshopped this little collection of possibly 'exotic' (to non-swedes that is) brands.
Check my timeline out inside.

Now, lets see if you can figure out what's me and what is my daughter. In some cases I couldn't find a logo and just used the item instead.

There might be a logo or two missing, of course, recalling all brands is much harder than it looks - for example I haven't added my bank's logo for the purchases I made after dinner, just the store and the only thing to keep my daughter happy when shopping for food - olive flavoured crisp bread. I know it seems weird but it's actually quite tasty.

I'll do my best to keep track of anyone else doing this (if you link here, I'll find you) and update this post accordingly.

Yes, before anyone says anything, I realize I forgot to add my cats Science Diet to the list. Damn. Pure oversight, (blame the beer!) as I have the logo right here *points*

Thanks for the link. It's cool looking at a timeline from a non-uk brand user! Seems much more colourful for some reason :-) Which, by the way, brings me to your hair - awesome colour!

NP, of course we should link it all around that's the fun. I thought the same looking at UK brands, but it's the brands that are the same all over the world that make me laugh - IKEA, Nivea and so on. And I do a curtsey to the hair compliment.

So this is what Dabitch's morning commute looks like.

HAHAHA. I think I'll just let you believe that. Suits me.

Cool. I'm going to have to do one of these. Maybe next Wednesday. A typical hump day.

Villeroy & Boch. Nice. Surprised to see Shiira there, too.

I was also surprised at how few brands you used, as I always thought we used a lot of brands in a day.

Great idea thought. I'm off to repeat the experiment while on holiday and then again on the daily commute to see the differences - more culture and reading on holiday, more coffee and Apple logos come the working week, me thinks. :)

Please do kgeiger, I'm dying to know what shaving cream you use. ;P

The V&B is my loo - and I think you just outed yourself as a fellow Shiira user.

There would have been a considerable larger amount of brands on that list had I washed my hair and put on makeup that day instead of just sunscreen - so I figured it was the perfect day to do that timeline. Shampoo&products, makeup and so on are at least 35-40 more brands as I'm not loyal to anyone, in eye shadow alone I'll wear three different brands at the same time.

By the way, Jane's brand timeline thingie ended up in the Torontist.

Also, more linkies (sorry I missed these)
