The Logo Design Idea Book is an accessible introduction to the key elements of good logo design, including insights into the logos of iconic brands.
This guide is an indispensable resource for anyone looking to learn the basic about designing a logo. The book introduces the key elements of good logo design and is perfect for graphic design and branding inspiration.
Written by Steven Heller and Gail Anderson, world's leading authorities on design, The Logo Design Idea Book includes 50 logo examples of good ideas in the service of representation, reputation and identification.
Arrows, swashes, swooshes, globes, sunbursts and parallel, vertical and horizontal lines, words, letters, shapes and pictures. Logos are the most ubiquitous and essential of all graphic design devices, representing ideas, beliefs and, of course, things.
