Logo Lounge Vol 6. Book Review
I’ve recently got my hands on the latest edition of the LogoLounge book series, Volume 6. Below is the official description of the book.
Logos define, distinguish, and disseminate a company’s core message. It is no wonder that creating successful marks takes a well conceived strategy and a skilled hand. This book, the sixth in the series, once again celebrates the brilliant work top designers around the world have created for clients both large and small. This diverse collection offers a wealth of inspiration and insights for graphic designers and their clients. Created by Bill Gardner, president of leading design firm Gardner Design, the LogoLounge website showcases the work of the world’s top designers as well as up-and-coming new talent. The book presents the site’s best designs of the past year as judged by an elite group of name-brand designers. The first portion of the book profiles ten top designers and spotlights their biggest, newest campaigns. A handful of their smaller projects are also featured in this section along with unused logos that have never before been seen. The second half of the book contains almost 2,000 logos organized by visual categories.LogoLounge 6 features the work of superstar artists and firms such as Stefan Sagmeister, Landor, Saffron, Jessica Hische, and MetaDesign. With 2,000 logos from every corner of the earth, this visually compelling volume is the go-to resource for inspiration from the best in the field.
I’m also happy to announce that they have chosen 6 of my logos for inclusion in the book, which I’ve shown in the photos below.
If you are interested in having a chance for your own work to published in the Logo Lounge book series & trend reports, it’s as simple as becoming a member of LogoLounge ($99) and uploading your logos for consideration. I’ve was invited to be a ‘foundational member’ about two years ago and have been a member ever since and because of this, I’m humbled to have had my work published in a number of their books as listed below.
- LogoLounge Vol. 5 (2 logos)
- LogoLounge Master Library – Shapes & Symbols (9 logos)
- LogoLounge Master Library – Typography and Enclosures (6 logos)
If you design logos on a regular basis, I’d consider becoming a member of Logo Lounge.
Below are a few snapshots of the book and my logos chosen for inclusion.
