Well only 3 months after launching Logo Of The Day, I now have another surprise for you… a new blog totally dedicated to logo & identity design. I introduce you to Logo Designer Blog! This blog is for logo design discussion, inspiration, tips and resources (and then some) which will be provided by myself and the many contributors to the site (we’ve already had 11 articles submitted). Please feel free to submit an article to the site.
On another note, you may have noticed the familiar pink, white and grey colour scheme? I have kept with these colours to cross brand all three of my sites (Just Creative Design, Logo Of The Day & now Logo Designer Blog). You may have also noticed the dot as the logo, quite similar to the Logo Of The Day logo. In short, I have gone with this simple approach because the circle is a very common design element found in many logos which in turn, reflects the blog quite well. It was quite a challenge though… how would you design a logo for a logo design blog?
So what type of articles can you expect on Logo Designer Blog? Here are a few already on offer:
- The Dot Grid Book For Logo Designers
- How To Use Colour In Logo Design To Effectively Communicate The Right Message
- My Favourite 17 Logos From The Past 3 Years Of Wolda
- Logo Designs After The Recession
- 3 Ways To Successfully Design Your FavIcon
- Lindon Leader (The Man Behind The FedEx Logo)
- Top 10 Logo Design Inspiration Galleries
- + lots more to come!
I would also like to thank those who have already submitted articles (which are or will be appearing soon); Alex Charchar (RetinArt), Anthony Zinni (Positive Space), Chad Mueller (Inspiredology), Chris Spooner (Spoon Graphics), Graham Smith (ImJustCreative), Lauren Marie (Creative Curio), Liam McKay (WeFunction) & Selene Bowlby (iDesign Studios).
Please do feel free to submit an article yourself.
