    Scott Hansen wrote an article that details his entire design process – complete with sketches – for the development of a new logo for his client, Plancast. (more…)

    What a Logo Does Not Have to Be or Do

    So many articles on logo design talk about what a logo should include, should be, should do. This discussion takes the opposite approach and talks about the things that it does NOT need to be or do. Sometimes, design is about simplification – in fact, a lot of the time, that’s the case – and this article speaks to that approach and reminds us of that ever-popular phrase – less is more. Amen!

    How to Make A Client’s Logo Bigger Without Making It Bigger

    We’ve all heard that dreaded, yet ubiquitous, question from a client: “Can you make the logo bigger?”  We rationalize, we plead, we instill the fear of a failed campaign – all to no avail.  Enter the genius of Michael Beirut with a solution to this all-too-common issue designers face. This is the most deliciously devious – make that, clever – “strategy” we’ve come across in a long while. Enjoy!

    The Identity Archives Project

    This is an idea that has been a long time coming. With the availability of design software and the proliferation of the Internet, how can you be assured that someone else, somewhere, hasn’t already designed a logo similar to the ones you’re presenting to clients? In steps the Identity Archives Project – a database of logo and identity designs from around the world, searchable by keywords. The site is relatively new, so if you like the idea, pass it along to your designer friends and help grow the database.
