Just received word today that the logo I designed for the Port of Long Beach’s Seaport Sustainability Symposium will be included in the upcoming LogoLounge 6 volume by Bill Gardner and Catharine Fishel, published by Rockport Publishers. This will be my seventh LogoLounge volume that my work has appeared with nearly 70 honored logos. As quoted by the LogoLounge staff, I am certainly proud of my inclusion in these volumes and am honored to be a part of it. Looks like I’ll take a long lunch today!
Very often, you see the oh-so slick and beautifully-crafted logo designs of your favorite sports teams. But, have you ever wondered how the designs evolved into what you see now, the completed logos? Well, there is an interesting world that combines logo design with the related discipline of illustration. In this post, I’m here to show you how my project for the San Jacinto College’s three campuses went, step-by-step.
With the constant stream and endless supply of logo inspiration available on the web and in print these days, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Like a kid in a candy store, there is almost too much to consider. Tons of inspirational reference, dozens of tutorials and scores of how-to articles all too willing to help you out of your creative hole. What you need is some inspirational detox.
In the last couple of years, there seems to be a major surge of fledgling logo designers making their way into the design community. What with so many logo inspiration sites popping up every week and some really wonderful logo design books out there, it’s hard to believe that this rather small, sub-culture of graphic design is becoming so popular. Here are some tips on starting a career.
There you are. You’re ready to start your own thing, hang your shingle and be your own boss. You’ve finally got everything in place and you need to have a logo designed, put it on the website, business cards, etc. And get your logo trademarked.
