A pretty great place to begin your collection, and what I’ve described as one of the best logo books available to date.

Not only does it break down the subject matter into basics, it gives an insight into how a successful logo designer works.

It includes excellent imagery illustrating the process from the sketchbook to the final prints.

In Logo Design Love, you will learn:

  • Best practices for extending a logo into a complete brand identity system.
  • Why one logo design is more effective than another.
  • How to create your own iconic logos.
  • What sets some graphic designers above the rest?
  • And 31 useful design tips for creating timeless logos.

“There are a lot of logo books out there that show collections of logos. David Airey’s Logo Design Love is something different. It’s a guide for designers (and clients) who want to understand what this business is all about. Written in a friendly, concise language, with the least design jargon, Airey gives a clear explanation of the process. Anyone involved in creating visual identities, or wanting to learn how to go about it, will find this book invaluable.”
