Since I first posted work on Logopond.com way back in January of 2008, I've seen the site grow from a hardcore bunch of logo geeks (my people!), into a thriving design community. It's been great to see the many designers from all over the world posting up work to show their wares, discuss the nuances of ligatures and line weights and get in a healthy debate about the many critiques happening every day on the site. I've made many an online friend from my days posting logo work - and even met a few in person. Now, I'm honored to be among the few that have my work showcased on Logopond. You can check out my collection and even peruse the site yourself. There's always plenty to see.
After a lot of discussion, blood, sweat and tears, the inaugural volume of the Logopond logo design book has finally been published. Much credit to David Blanchet, the founder and curator of the website, Logopond.com for making this all happen. All in all, from my initial thumbing through, it certainly is a nice first-time effort. I am honored to be included (and on the very first page, mind you! Sweet.) with all of the other 'Ponders. Some really nice work is in there.
As an added bonus, I was asked to include a profile page along with my logo wares, with some interesting questions about how I became a logo designer and other bits of info. If you decide to get yourself a copy, you can certainly take a look. As with most of these self-published efforts, there aren't a lot of copies available, so make sure you order yours now.
I certainly hope this first effort will be something we start to see on a regular basis. Cheers, guys!
