I love good logo books. The ones that are curated well are like inspiration gold. When a designer looks at a large collection of the best designs by their peers it often raises the standard in that designers mind of what is considered good. In my case it is also very humbling because there are some amazing designers out there creating on a daily basis.
Before I got my copy of the latest logo book by Rockport I figured it would be good because for one thing they are the publishers of the LogoLounge books which are my favorites but also because this one called Design: Logo was curated by Von Glitschka and Paul Howalt. Both of them I trust because they are master logo designers themselves and because they have similar taste in logos as me.
I am honored to say that some of my work and some of the work of my fellow designers at my day job are among the designs that were picked for the book. The first ones I've included below are ones that I would show in my portfolio because I designed them completely or I feel good about my contribution to them. The set below that are ones that I either played a very small role in designing or had no significant part in but am proud that they have been included.
